Workright

P

What is it?

Employers want people who are punctual and reliable, can work with other people and can complete tasks safely to the required standard. 

Workright provides a framework to develop a range of basic transferable employability skills. It can be used in a variety of settings, including schools, FE, training providers and day care services. 

Who is it for?

The programme has been developed for young people (aged 14+) and adults who are following a work-based/work experience programme of study.

It can cater for a wide range of abilities: those performing below Entry Level through to those at Entry 3 who may be able to progress quickly to training programmes and employment.

Progression

For those seeking a qualification outcome, Transition Challenge can be used to support the delivery of the Entry 1 qualifications in Personal Progress.

There is also scope for progression through:

Requirements

The Workright modules can be undertaken in any order. Certification is available for all four modules or for individual modules.

Levels of support are used to show how the learner has achieved the activity. They show individual progression and differentiation between learners:

  • Experience recorded
  • Gestural help
  • No help
  • Physical help
  • Sensory experience
  • Spoken/signed help

Additionally, there is an opportunity to record students' achievements by allocating a P level or other descriptor to their work, as appropriate.


Modules

Each module is divided into three sections:

  • Health and safety at work: Health and safety rules; Emergencies; Keeping your workspace clean and tidy

  • Responsibilities in the workplace: Attendance; Timekeeping; Appearance

  • Working with others: Respecting others; Getting on with people at work; Working in a team

  • You at work: Doing jobs at work; The things you use at work; Getting help with problems at work

Workright Student Book

Each student must have their own copy of the student book.
