This is the fourth of the new Lifelong Learning:Personal Effectiveness Guides by Rosalie Marsh which draw from her extensive skills & industrial experience in sales management and work-based learning in adult and further education. It is a step in the personal and professional development journey where development of the whole person is at the heart of Marsh's ethos. Currently there are approx. 1 million people in the UK who are 'Not in Employment, Education, or Training' (NEETS). In addition, there are adults and young people who are pre-employment, in employment and looking to enhance their careers or are between jobs. Many do not have the life skills and /or a basic understanding of what is required to become and stay employed and enhance their future. In two parts, Skills for Employability - designed to be read in bite-sized chunks - focuses on some of the skills you need in order to impress an employer, stand out from the rest, become and stay employed, and enhance your future. Part One looks at the Pre-Employment skills needed. Part Two looks at the standards of behaviour and requirements of employers. Features of Skills for Employment Part Two. Each chapter details the Learning Outcomes and relevance to other qualifications such as Functional Skills, Life Skills and Employability Skills and in particular SSA 14.1 Foundations for Learning and Life & 14.2 Preparation for Work, and Functional Skills; all of which are linked to the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF). At the end of each topic, there will be a series of short practical activities for self assessment for learners to see how far they have 'travelled' in gaining knowledge and understanding. In turn this will add to a sense of achievement. All content will relate to the current gaps in knowledge& understanding and softer skills for school leavers, 16-18 year old unemployed, returners to work, learners with disabilities who are seeking a change of employment, those in employment and seeking to enhance their prospects or are between jobs.
