In the fast-changing world teachers are expected to prepare students for jobs that do not yet exist. By working with employers, teachers can ensure that they help their students receive the most up-to-date knowledge and experience of the working world as possible. Opportunities to work with employers will give students insights into the types of skills that are needed in the workplace both generically and specifically. Involvement of employers in the curriculum will allow students to develop their functional skills and personal learning and thinking skills with closer reference to the requirements of employers.
The results of the project were a set of materials on methods to transplant the idea of Corporate Volunteering from business and the world of work to secondary schools and a training course programme concerning the methods and ways of cooperation between schools and Corporate Volunteering.For further information, please visit: http://www.cve-project.eu
