Essential requirements
Given the work-based nature of this unit, the majority of resources will be those available to learners in the workplace. The work will normally be planned to be achievable within the resource constraints of the employer. Therefore knowledge of company structures and daily routines and expectations is essential. Learners must also have access to a wide range of research facilities including careers library and/or careers services. Tutor support and guidance are essential. Learners must remain in touch with tutors during the work experience – email is often the best way but some colleges may have access to a virtual learning environment where learners can share information and experiences with each other and the tutor.
Employer engagement and vocational contexts
Employers could help tutors, with for example, the planning of programmes of learning, or provision of visits, guest speakers and mentors. They could also help to design assessment activities.
