Education and Employers has today published a new article entitled ‘What is a meaningful encounter with the world of work?’.
It is now widely accepted that meaningful encounters with the world of work are vitally important for all young people.
But what is meant by a ”meaningful encounter”?
This article has been written in response to teachers wanting more information about what constitutes such encounters and how they can go about getting the best outcomes for young people.
The charity has also produced a toolkit to help state schools plan their career provision and identify and help young people who need more support: those who are disengaged from learning or have misaligned aspirations and / or are uncertain about their future.
