Education to training and Employment

“Pathways for future education, training and employment,” The ERO Report that has just been released makes some strong recommendations that will support and prepare students for education, training and employment in the 21st Century. I have previously spoken about the rapid global changes that are happening and the need for educators and education to move to support it. The report talks about not only the need to provide options that suit a student’s “ability, interests and future plans” but also giving them access to services that will help them with their choices. Logical traditional pathways that followed education through to employment does not always fit with the students our system produces. Not only must learning be differentiated but also the step that takes them from education into the employment arena.
