Council launches new plan to get pupils ready for the world of work

Nottingham City Council is launching a new plan with schools, aimed at getting more pupils ready for work.

City schools are being asked to sign up to the Employability in Schools Strategy where pupils have an opportunity to meet with an employer in every school year from Primary onwards.

The council has already been supporting 16 to 18 year olds to get them to stay in education, enter employment or training. However, in order that local employers have access to a skilled workforce, young people need to be ready for the world of work, starting from primary school.
