Targets: employability skills — breaching the Comfort Zone — confidence for Work Experience

We debate aspiration — pupils list their own qualities — and see the process of applying for work experience or a job through the eyes of the employer. Using role play and my video camera, we tackle interviews, body language, eye contact and confident speech.

It’s a unique chance to hard wire the soft skills.
