This lesson brings to life the LifeSkills interactive Virtual Work Experience tool in a classroom setting. The tool provides insight into workplace, specifically a digital transformation agency. It offers multiple pause points on screen that present either an interactive challenge for students to consider, or a selection of questions that invite them to explore the skills and motivations of the different employees.
By the end of this activity students will be able to:
Help extend your students’ virtual work experience journey by encouraging them to use our independent activity exploring different job sectors and the skills required. We have also created teacher guidance to help provide feedback on their worksheets.
To provide students with even further insight into what it’s like working for different companies and sectors, visit this BBC Teach series of short films following a group of teenagers as they try out being apprentices for a day, in sectors ranging from hairdressing to dental nursing.
Help us to continue creating relevant content for you by leaving some additional feedback.
