My Education Report : Pearson UK - 2 views

    Students taking part in the My Education debate groups often said it was difficult for them to connect the relevance of school and learning to their future work aims.

    There appear to be three causes of the disconnection:

    1) Little association between lesson content and career preferences;
    2) Teachers not knowing their pupils' hopes and dreams;
    3) Inadequate opportunities to gain foundation 'life' skills.

    Students expressed the need for learning that relates to their goals. They are hungry for that connection, and speak easily and specifically about what they want to do with their lives. Many aspire to go to university, and understand that means doing well in core subjects. But they also enjoy lessons that link clearly to their career ambitions.
