Career Term of the Week

Week beginning 23rd November

 This week’s term is important for everyone.

EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS: A group of essential abilities that involve the development of a knowledge base, expertise level and mind-set that is increasingly necessary for success in the modern workplace.

 Some examples are:

  • Communication
  • Problem Solving
  • Team Work
  • Leadership
  • Creativity

You might think it is only for Year 11s when they are applying for college or an apprenticeship? NO! You should ALL be developing your employability skills all the time.

Why not choose 2 of the above and see if you can demonstrate those skills this week? Maybe your form can choose one a week to try out?

 Let me know what you achieve.


Week beginning 16th November

 In a new departure, each week I will be sharing with you a careers-related key term. As you progress through your learning journey at St James’s, you will become increasingly aware of the importance of these words and phrases, so please take time to familiarise yourself with them and maybe share them at home or ask family and friends about them?

To start off, in support of Anti-Bullying week, we have:

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES: The same opportunities for all irrespective of race, gender, age, disability, culture, sexual orientation, or marital status.

See if you can use this term this week.
