Employability and Study Plus
“To be employed is to be at risk, to be employable is to be secure”
Peter Hawkins (1999)The Art of Building Windmills
The Employability and Study Plus Programme delivers the skills that will help students to gain and retain a job, develop a career and respond resiliently to change.
The units build on the skills already taught in school, clubs, teams, sports etc. and offer the opportunity to recognise these skills with a formal BTEC Workskills qualification.
Employability and Study Plus encompasses work placement, interview techniques, team work, and vocational skills as well as the ‘soft skills’ that employers look for, such as adaptability, eagerness to learn, and a can-do-attitude.
Students are supported in managing their additional time to secure the best possible GCSE outcomes.
