Research by Institute of Education (Centre for Longitudinal Studies, 2012) shows children and young people do better at school if they have the goal of a job in mind.

Employability Now Guidebook

£25 (including post & packaging)

Funded by South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership and the British Council, ‘Employability Now’ is a series of innovative activity-based learning sessions to help teachers and trainers prepare young people for work. This clear and practical guide will get young people thinking and talking positively about their work futures, especially what kind of work they will be good at and enjoy. Proven engaging for a wide range of learners, as shown in the case studies from UK and overseas, the sessions require minimal additional resources, are easily adaptable, and can be delivered as a structured 20-30 hour course or as one-off lessons.

The activities are meant to be universally relevant and applicable, helpful to teachers and trainers wherever they are in the world – from school teachers of English or citizenship in the UK to vocational trainers of electrical engineering or sewing machine operation in India.
