Thank you so much
This Unit 47 Employability Skills provides learners with the opportunity to acquire honed employability skills required for effective employment.
All learners at all levels of education and experience require honed employability skills as a prerequisite to entering the job market. This unit gives learners an opportunity to assess and develop an understanding of their own responsibilities and performance in, or when entering, the workplace. It considers the skills required for general employment, such as interpersonal and transferable skills, and the dynamics of working with others in teams or groups including leadership and communication skills. It also deals with the everyday working requirement of problem solving which includes the identification or specification of the ‘problem’, strategies for its solution and then evaluation of the results through reflective practices.
Access to a range of work-related exemplars (for example, appraisal and development systems, team health checks, job descriptions, action plans, communication strategies) will help in delivering this unit. Case studies based on relevant sectors, workshops, career talks or work-based mentors will also be useful in the teaching and learning aspect of the unit. Learners should generate assessment evidence through a range of possible activities including individual work placements, project management, research reports, development of case studies, working with others (for example employee-supervisor roles, teamwork, group work) and everyday communication within the workplace
