Economic, societal and technological forces are changing the world of work, which has led to core transferable skills becoming increasingly valuable to employers. It's also key that young people know how to present themselves and demonstrate such skills when applying for jobs. We've created a set of interactive worksheets, adapted from our lesson plans to help students develop the skills needed around these topics.
The worksheets are designed for 14-19 year olds and can be downloaded and shared with students as independent learning activities or can be used to complement the relevant lesson plans. We also have online lesson films around some of the themes below for your students to watch remotely.
