Level 1 Future Pathways
Where your workplace is your classroom and your employer is your teacher …
Future Pathways is a practical work experience programme designed to introduce younger senior students to the world of work by developing vital skills and attributes needed by employers in real work situations. In short, they learn how to work! Students will be contracted to the course and to an employer. In addition to classroom learning, students complete a maximum of 10 weeks’ work experience together with projects their teacher and employer will assess on-the-job.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
Practical, fun and applied best describes the knowledge learning for a Future Pathways student. From ’how to get a job in five minutes’ to creating a stand out curriculum vitae (CV) and negotiating a workplace agreement with a real employer, students build a self-confidence that puts them ahead of their peers in terms of a real awareness of what employers want and need from them as future members of the workforce. Students learn how to write for business, start work in a new workplace, workplace health and safety skills, understand the duties of an employee, and their rights and responsibilities at work under law. They also complete a Workplace First Aid certificate, qualifying them for two years as workplace first responders. The routine of a Future Pathways student forces them to quickly learn how to manage their normal school studies with work experience commitments, to be communicative, organised and prepared.
