Employability Skills

Evidence consistently shows that employers are concerned about gaps in key employability and life skills among school leavers. The Dorset Studio School is clear that employability skills must be taught alongside and throughout the curriculum in order that not only do our students achieve high value qualifications, but they will also be equipped to make an immediate and valuable contribution to any workforce. Studio Schools teach the CREATE framework which is outlined below. Students are regularly assessed against these key employability skills both by teachers and work experience placement staff.
