The Importance of Employability

One major part of providing a good education for our children is so that they will grow up able to hold a steady, comfortable and enjoyable job that will allow them to live. As teachers, substitute teachers, teaching assistants and supply teachers, it is our job to provide them with that level of education. However in some instances, it seems as if more stress is placed on simply meeting criteria and passing exams than building an employable repertoire.

Employability Skills

tie-349439_960_720The Chambers of Commerce has suggested that more importance should be placed on teaching children about skills that make them employable from a younger age.

By instilling these kinds of skills in our pupils, we are helping them to set up good work ethics and a strong CV for when they apply for jobs in the future.

Careers Education

While some advice is given to secondary school children covering the type of career they might like to pursue, more should be done to assist children in getting eventual work. Suggestions have been made for children to visit local businesses as well as museums and art galleries in order to give pupils an idea of the working world.

It should serve to reason that teaching our kids how to maintain a good professional relationship along with a strong work ethic should be of a high priority.
