Wrotham School a great education

The future labour market and employability skills

In their fortnightly careers sessions, Year 7 students will be introduced to the differences between salaries and wages, but their main focus will be on understanding that the character strengths that the school encourages and values are also employability skills. They will be introduced to the ‘future labour market’ and how to recognise (and use) workplace or organisational values in choosing a career or job.

Through these sessions, they will understand that the character strengths of compassion are also employability skills.
