Developing Students Skills to Face Tomorrow
  • Skills such as resilience, communication,
    proactivity and leadership are just some of the
    areas that are essential when facing the
    challenges of this century's job landscape - but
    its not always clear how to teach these.
    Sustaining young peoples effort when facing big
    challenges and equipping them with the skillsets
    theyll need to prepare for the unseen future is
    a significant task. But it doesnt have to be a
    daunting one! Following this five step guide, it
    would be easy to support your students on their
    future career journey.

1. Teach Collaboration as a Value and Skillset
  • Young people need new skills for the current and
    future workplace that will make them ready to
    collaborate with others, not only in their own
    classroom or workplace but potentially with
    others across the planet. Encouraging students to
    work together on a creative challenge, and
    allowing them to reflect on the learnings they
    take from the exercise, will help them better
    understand what it means to be a part of an
    increasingly collaborative and connected world.

2. Build on Evaluation and Analysis
  • New information is being discovered and shared at
    an ever-growing rate. Predictions show that
    50percent of the facts students are memorising
    today will no longer be accurate or complete in
    the near future. Students need to know not only
    how to find accurate information, but also how to
    critically analyse its reliability and
    usefulness. Building research-based tasks and
    projects into your teaching will provide a basis
    to develop this essential 21st century skillset
    for work. Why not try the Life Skills to get
    students thinking about the sorts of ways they
    could put these skills into action.

3. Teach Tolerance and Resilience
  • To successfully work in a growing collaborative
    and global community, employers will be looking
    for candidates who show an ability and openness
    to communicate with unfamiliar cultures and
    ideas. To build these skills, students will need
    exposure to open discussions and experiences that
    can help them feel comfortable communicating with
    others. School trips, debating sessions, visits
    to a workplace or QAs with a local employer are
    all good ways of showing students open mind-sets
    in action.

4. Help Students Learn Through their Strengths
  • We are all born with brains that want to learn.
    Were also born with different strengths, and by
    growing the strengths we best identify with we
    can better feed that appetite for learning. One
    size certainly doesnt fit all when it comes to
    developing young minds! It can be challenging to
    tailor the curriculum for each individual, but by
    looking ahead you can start to pinpoint elements
    of your classes which will appeal to particular
    students strengths and interests. By using
    front-loading techniques to bring these
    particular topics to the forefront of your
    teaching, you can start to tap into students
    natural curiosity.

5. Use learning beyond the classroom
  • By using what they learn repeatedly and in
    different, personally meaningful ways, students
    will find it much easier to retain and retrieve
    what they learn in the classroom. It will also
    help them better understand the importance of
    certain skills in their everyday and future
    lives. Try providing opportunities for students
    to "transfer" school learning to real-life
    situations for example, when looking at solving
    a problem, ask students how they would approach a
    scenario that could happen to them, and the steps
    they would go through to solve it. You can make a
    start with the Life Skills Problem Solving
    session like something, which sets out an
    approach to systematically tackle challenges,
    with real-life scenarios to inspire your
