Get It: Skills and Mindsets
The world of work is changing. People are increasingly moving between jobs and careers and it is now expected that you’ll have 17 different jobs in your lifetime, across 5 different careers. This might sound overwhelming.
The good news is, you can develop the sorts of skills and personal attributes employers are looking for through various ways. Your experiences studying, or training and working can be these opportunities to develop skills known as enterprise or transferable skills. The kinds of skills you take with you to any job, like communication, problem solving and taking initiative.
Get It was co-designed with students from Cheltenham Secondary College, to show young people how personal attributes and enterprise skills are used in everyday life. Get It follows the stories of 6 people who transitioned from school to work in diverse industries and explores how these skills have helped them get to where they are today.
