The British Army Employability resources give students the support they need in 2021 as they face new obstacles including remote interviews and increasingly competitive positions.
Available for Careers Week 2021, the Employability digital resources for key stage 4 capture everything students should watch out for, from body language to your final statement, as well as highlighting the importance of essential skills they need for the job market, including writing applications and developing interview strategy.
The resources showcase a range of careers across STEM, Arts and Humanities, from Army Comms Engineer to English Language Teacher, which gives students an idea of the requirements in their chosen profession. The British Army is one of the biggest employers in the UK and looks at every candidate with a great level of detail and so following their instruction ensures any young person can be fully prepared for a future application.
The British Army Employability resources follow three example students as they transition from school to work, and shows how each of their unique skills and passions can be applied to a job position. The resources offer simple methods for best representing yourself in a positive light and offer interactive sections, including sample interview questions and mini scenario briefings, that can be used by students at home or as slides in a remote learning lesson.
The resources also offer specific sections on budgeting and how students can prepare to best manage their finances once they start earning a salary from their chosen career path, whether that be in the British Army or beyond.
