16/10/2017 | What works
Work-related learning has long been part of the careers education landscape in secondary schools, but how effective is it for preparing young people for the world of work?
This paper summarises the research on three forms of work related learning: work experience placements, job shadowing and workplace visits, showcasing the effectiveness of these activities and highlighting examples of best practice.
The evidence suggests that work experience is a ‘potentially effective’ activity for young people to engage in and is associated with a range of positive outcomes. Whereas job shadowing and workplace visits have only been shown to be ‘potentially effective’, as their duration tends to be less than a work experience placement.
