Introduction to the World of Work Synopsis:
We have subdivided the modules into personal and business since this seems a logical approach. Educationalists suggest an inductive approach to education is the best one where we go from the experience of the students to the underlying principles and therefore we have put in the personal modules first. The objective of all the modules is both to help people within schools or colleges to be faced with realistic choices which can be answered if necessary in the classroom but also to provide material which can be used by young people working on their own. Young people need to have transferable skills and some of these can be obtained by looking at the ways in which businesses approach them. It is therefore worthwhile trying to build up a portfolio of ways in which businesses have these approaches and to see which ones are effective and why, also which ones are totally misplaced.
