Classroom task: discovering your students’ aspirations
What is included in the survey?We have used the Skills Builder Framework to structure Part A of the survey, which is focused on broad reflections around the transferable skills that are useful at work. Part B of the survey focuses more specifically on attitudes and aspirations about STEM careers.
What is Skills Builder?The Skills Builder Partnership brings together 800+ organisations around a common approach to skill development. Working with schools, colleges and employers across a range of sectors, Skills Builder has developed progression framework for learning eight skills that are essential in education and employment. We’ve included the skills from the Skills Builder Framework in the survey to provide insight into where your students think their strengths lie.
