7 Digital tools - comparison chart What Is missing for POLs ? Where is the real opportunity for community? Where is the real opportunity for their content? Suitable for localised training and employment context and mapping the availability of employers How accessible multi-media (literacy needs ?) M

8 The successful application of new ideas generated at the intersection of insight and invention, which leads to the creation of social or economic value Insight understanding the context, histories and work of others Invention finding and developing the best ideas Application putting ideas into practice Value capturing outcomes, impact and learning But technology ‘solutions’ which don’t bring about social innovation are hollow. FROM NOMINET TRUST M

9 What were these stairs/barriers ? M

10 Our assumptions If Marginalised Young People have an insight and understanding of how skills relate to the actual work place, they will be motivated to engage and take responsibility for learning new skills. If Marginalised Young People are involved in co-designing Work Related Learning activities, the online community and digital CVs, they will learn and develop new skills. If Marginalised Young People have Digital CVs they will be better equipped to demonstrate their skills and talents to employers – in comparison to using conventional CVs. If Marginalised Young People have access to an online network of peers, adults and resources, they will have more successful transitions from school-to-work. S

11 So our non-technical journey so far … Unlocking & identifying Skills Recognising workplace Skills What makes us unique? Creating a digital CV What employers want ? Tailoring our CVs How do I go about finding a job ? Interviews and securing a job Recruiting a Mentor What questions help me identify my skills ? Where and from whom do we find this info ? What new media can help us show we are special ? What would we do if we were employing someone ? What is the most effective way of finding out what jobs are out there ? How do I get confidence at selling myself ? Who do I know who could be my mentor ? S

12 Reflections S CONVERSATIONS CHALLENGING ASSUMPTIONS WHAT EMPLOYERS WANT – STEPS

13 Co-designing innovative careers education resources based on STEPS S

14 Employers need right skills Career Aspirations Mismatch Accessible for all E-portfolio Collaborative space Professional vs Craftsmanship Citizens Thinkers Leaders Engagement with relevant and local employers Mentoring Employer Advice Time Auction to offer experience Literature review, survey and findings Proliferation of careers websites Functional, social and emotional skills Mastery and Pride Entrepreneurialism

15 We need to question We need to see change We need evidence We need it to work We need a kick up the backside ! Everet Roger’s Innovation Diffusion model S

16 What does this chasm feel like ? Living with this ambiguity Living with teacher’s insecurity Living with the challenge of YP’s chaos Living with the ‘window’ closing (before people say you are wrong!) S

17 How did Ben get on last week ? S PLAY FILM

18 How do you identify your skills? Student replies “What makes you sparkle like a diamond?” Bad experiences help polish the diamond #neettweets How do you answer ‘Have I ever been in trouble with the law?’ in an interview? Reply from student “Ask the interviewer” #mybadGot a student who loves working on cars. He’s got dirty hands but a good heart. Need a garage willing to give him a trial? #needabreakStudent told me the guy interviewing him was more scared than he was, is that a good thing? #waitingforfeedback. CAPTURE AND SUMMARIZING WHAT WE ARE LEARNING ! NEET TWEETS S

19 GENERAL ASSUMPTIONS WHICH ARE WRONG !  PUSHED OUT LEARNERS ARE “TROUBLE” BECAUSE THEY CAN’T LEARN  THE FUNCTION OF SCHOOLS IS TO OFFER A BROAD EDUCATION, PREPARE STUDENTS FOR EXAMINATIONS, UNIVERSITY AND PROFESSIONAL CAREERS  WE KNOW WHAT TEENAGERS NEED, BECAUSE WE WERE YOUNG ONCE.  THE MASSIVE COMMERCIAL INVESTMENT MUST BE MAKING IT MORE EFFECTIVE  THE NEW DRIVE TO IMPROVE CAREERS EDUCATION WITHIN SCHOOLS AND NEW ONLINE TOOLS WILL MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE See handout M
