How Curricula & Co bridges the Skills Gap
School is great! It’s a time to learn and succeed and discover. Many people discover their lifelong passion at school. You may have one particular teacher, or even two or three or more, who have had a huge impact on your motivation and confidence.
It’s meant to be a place that equips young people for adult life. And in many ways, it does. But statistics are showing that the traditional education system, with its classroom-based, mostly theoretical approach to teaching is leaving a huge deficit in the emerging workforce.
Nearly 70% of businesses believe that high schools do not adequately prepare young people for the realities of working life.
So what is the problem?
Part of it may be that there is lack of focus on letting young people get stuck in and learn work skills in a practical way.
That is why Curricula and Co’s Employability Academy is passionate about partnering with schools, and their career departments in particular, using our unique programme to bring the working world to life. We teach real life skills in real life workplaces, finding the right placement for each person.
They learn essential things such as emotional resilience, communication, team working, and maintaining a good work ethic, among other things. Examples from our success stories include people’s confidence getting boosted, gaining positive recognition and even promotions!
