DYW Interesting Practice – Larbert High School: Developing young peoples’ skills across all aspects of learning⤴

from @ Education Scotland's Learning Blog

Developing learners’ skills is high on the agenda at Larbert High School.  The leadership team have adopted a systematic approach to enhancing young peoples’ skills for life and work and implemented a holistic ‘Skills Framework’ across all aspects of the curriculum.  The school uses the DYW context to offer learners a wide variety of experience and  pathways in order to ensure all young people are developing the necessary skills and aptitudes for a positive vision about the futures.  Collaboration with both the wider community and employers is elementary to the successful realisation of this goal.

The ‘Skills Framework at Larbert High School complements this agenda and ensures that all young peoples know, understand and are able to articulate  their skill sets and are able to relate these to their  career aspirations.     The following document outlines the Skills Framework:
