NPFS Nutshell guide: Creativity, Enterprise and Employability⤴

from @ Education Scotland's Learning Blog

The latest National Parent Forum of Scotland nutshell guide is now available on the NPFS website: http://www.npfs.org.uk/creativity-in-a-nutshell/

Its focus is Creativity, Enterprise and Employability so we hope you will find this guide particularly useful in your work. It is has been produced by the NPFS in partnership with Skills Development Scotland with input from a range of other partners, including NCLN representatives and Young Enterprise Scotland.

It recognises the significant and increasing link between future employability and well developed creativity skills in young people. In their 2016 report ‘The Future of Jobs’, the World Economic Forum highlighted anticipated changes in employability skills and suggested that by 2020 over one third of the skills considered important in today’s workforce will have changed. Notably, creativity will have become one of the top three skills needed to deal with the avalanche of new products, new technologies and new ways of working. https://www.weforum.org/reports/the-future-of-jobs . As you know, the focus on creativity and employability is also reflected in Quality Indicator 3.3 in the latest (2016) version of the school self-evaluation and improvement guide How Good is our School?

NPFS Career EdNPFS has developed a publication for parents which provides a helpful introduction to the new programme of career education starting in the 2015/16 school year.

Career education will deliver key entitlements to all of our children and young people. These will ensure that Scotland’s children acquire the skills and knowledge they need so that they can reach the futures that are right for them. Have a look at our leaflet for further details of how this will work and how parents can support their children.
