Students need to be given the opportunity and support to succeed in the world of work. To demonstrate the strong work ethic valued by employers and to develop the skills and attributes employers look for such as accountability, creativity, good judgement, self-awareness and taking responsibility. Increasing complexities and competitive nature of the labour market and the changing skills demands and recruitment practices from employers mean young people need to embrace the chances offered to them to show employers what they are capable of.
