World of Work

World of Work (WOW) is a teaching resource currently being used in more than 500 UK schools.

Our WOW resources include trumps-style cards to get young people thinking and talking about their future in work.  Each card shows a different job with facts and figures about that job:  Number of jobs in the UK, Qualifications, Starting pay, Average pay, Speaking & Listening, Physical Fitness.  After playing with these cards, young people will be have broader awareness of the quantities and requirements of different jobs.

There are two WOW resource packs for schools:

For individuals, we have:

  • Individual WOW – single packs for young people to use at home
  • WOW Ambassador Pack – box sets for ambassadors from the real world to use when work visiting classrooms to deliver a one-hour employability session.
