It is becoming increasingly recognised that young people need to develop their employability skills, alongside qualifications, in preparation for the world of work and securing a job.
Here at RM Unify we understand the pressure of preparing students for the world of work, so we have pulled together some of the apps available through RM Unify which can help school leaders with work experience provision, CV guides, interview preparation and some top tips on how you make your pupils ready for the often daunting world of work.
The National Foundation for Educational Research recently released a paper on how to provide meaningful work experience for young people as part of 16 to 19 study programmes. The guide offers advice to schools and colleges looking to implement and deliver new work experience opportunities. The guide is well worth a read, providing questions to begin an internal audit of your current work experience provision, and suggesting 7 top tips of how to create more work experience opportunities and deliver them more effectively.
But what can you, as a teacher or senior leader, do in school to make your pupils ready for the world of work? And how can RM Unify help you to do this?
