Young people face many challenges in life and have many important decisions to make. In this subject we look at many aspects of life such as family, friends, school and work. Learning for life and work creates an opportunity to think through different issues that affect the young people.
We look at aspects of local and global citizenship thinking about questions such as ‘What are my rights and what responsibilities go with them? What is my attitude to others who are different?’ We study a module on Personal Development and focus on questions such as ‘How can I look after my own well-being? How should I deal with relationships?’ Our last module is one on employability, enabling the young people to explore questions such as ‘How is the workplace changing? Taking account of my strengths and interests, where can I best fit in?’
Learning for Life and Work helps young people to make informed choices and act responsibly in today’s society.
