In 2018, Edge published Joint Dialogue: How are schools developing real employability skills?. This which outlined the skills and competencies that employers look for from their employees. It also surveyed teachers to understand whether they believe pupils are developing these employability skills and where they develop these. This current piece of research will hear from the young people themselves, to understand pupils’ (from Year 10 to Year 13) perceptions and experiences of developing employability skills while at school or sixth form college.
