Watch Stephen Carrick-Davies the CEO of Facework and the author of this book share the thinking behind creating this resource.
" In working with teachers and civil society leaders across the world, I am convinced that young people desperately need practical resources to help them cross the widening gulf between education and the world of work, a world which is itself changing so rapidly and radically with the advent of AI, machine learning and globalisation.
We know that this is challenging, but we must do more to teach Soft Skills and Character Strengths in the school curriculum. That will involve being bold in valuing alternative forms of assessment, recognising new pedagogies and helping students create their own learning frameworks and valuing what they bring to the learning.
I hope that this workbook which has been co-designed with young people, will start to help teachers introduce this topic in their school. However, this is relevant to parents and of course employers who have always known it's vital to recruit for attitude and train for skills.
Like all good learning resources, this is work in progress, and we value feedback and critical review. But let's work hard together to better support our amazing young people to grow their social and emotional skills and prepare for a world of change."
