Words for Work: Developing Young People's Communication Skills Needed for Employment. A National Literacy Trust Research Report
Brown, Ariadne; Teravainen-Goff, Anne; Clark, Christina
National Literacy Trust
Many employers bemoan a lack of communication skills relevant to the workplace in their workforce, particularly with their younger intake. This report shows that providing young people who aren't confident communicators with structured oracy and writing activities as well as real-world opportunities to practise those skills with business professionals can improve their communication skills, build their confidence and inspire them to pursue their goals.
