The main focus of the assessment for this unit is on the skills required for job search. However, it is expected that the underpinning teaching and learning will help develop learners’ awareness of
• the range of on and off-line sources of job vacancy information, and how to identify from the array of jobs listed those which are most suitable for them
• how they can take a pro-active approach to job search, e.g. by dropping into shops or restaurants to ask if there is, or might soon be, work available or emailing employers using an appropriate email address.
To help learners develop the skills needed for job-searching.
