Educating the employees of the future

Develop lifelong learning skills

The one thing that we do know is that people entering and already in the workplace will need to re-skill many times during their career. Due to continual change they will need to acquire knowledge and skills on an ongoing basis.

Employability skills are life skills so it is crucial to get people to learn from all of their life, education and work experiences. We facilitate this by providing individuals and ideally their advisors with the tools to identify their development needs and recognise their progress.

Aspiration and motivation

Too many students and employees have low education and career aspirations. They are often referred to as the “lost” and take their lack of academic achievement as an indication of what they can expect to achieve in the workplace.

Academic success is a very poor predictor of performance in the workplace so it is important not to allow those less academically gifted to set their goals too low.

By using our tools to identify people’s strengths and matching them to opportunities where they can develop and exploit their particular skills we can help them to recalibrate their goals.

How to choose

There have been some major insights, coming from both Behavioural Psychology and Neural Sciences, about how we make choices.

Educators can be highly influential “choice architects” by providing individuals with the choice structure and support to make confident and satisfying. This is very important for both their wellbeing and their subsequent occupational success.

Develop employability skills

While many of the skills that employers require are developed through traditional education, many are developed outside the classroom either though work or life experience.

By developing a skills-inventory we can identify where people are today and where they need to be to achieve their occupational goal. We can then develop a personalised development plan to map out the journey with all learning methodologies tailored to individual needs.

Social mobility, diversity and inclusivity

If we are going to get the right people into the right roles then it is essential that we make use of technology to democratise the process and access the deepest and widest pool of talent available.

There is ample evidence that career choice and selection is affected by bias, both conscious and unconscious. However, what is less recognised is that the most destructive bias is the unconscious bias that all employees/applicants have.

By getting students and employees to have a higher level of self-awareness, including an understanding of the effects that social stereotyping will have had on their choices, we can open up a whole new world of employment opportunities.
