Careers - Work Ethic

For the Gatsby Benchmark Careers Guidelines. 1 hour fully resourced careers lesson focusing on why having a good work ethic and being motivated is important and a quality that future employers are looking for.

Firstly, students will investigate what it looks like to display a good work ethic and appear motivated to a potential employer. They will then take stock of why hard work, motivation and a positive attitude pays off and how they can demonstrate they have these qualities and stand out from the crowd.

The lesson sees students complete a skills audit, team group activities, individual tasks, clip tasks and and is perfect for a PSHE / Citizenship careers unit.

This resource pack includes a one hour long PowerPoint with accompanying worksheets, well differentiated activities, literacy focus tasks, clip tasks with three-way differentiated questions and information sheets.

The lesson has been left editable and is filled with engaging, well differentiated and fun activities. It is useful for PSHE, Citizenship or Tutor Time. As with all our lessons, you don’t need any prior knowledge as all the information is included - you can just pick up and teach it.
