Impetus – Ready for Work report: The capabilities young people need to find and keep work!⤴

from @ Education Scotland's Learning Blog

In case you haven seen this report so far:

This Ready for Work (2014) report, produced by Impetus-PEF in partnership with the Young Foundation and the Social Research Unit at Dartington (SRU), seeks to provide practical answers to the question: how can we help young people be ready for work? The study aims to support those who fund, invest in or provide services to improve the employability of young people – including our main concern, young people from disadvantaged background.  

It identifies six essential capabilities that young people are expected to demonstrate in order to get and keep a job:

Self-awareness, Receptiveness, Drive, being Self-assured, Resilience and being Informed.

The report also reflected on a number of programmes or interventions with a proven record of success, providing valuable thoughts and information as people develop and implement strategies within their respective contexts.
