Today’s employers are in desperate need of employees with soft skills. Skills such as self-management, communication, and problem-solving. The earlier these skills are developed the better, so, teachers have a crucial role to play when it comes to instilling such abilities into students. Getting them ready for the world of work, and helping the UK economy to thrive.
Of course, the business world is already collaborating. Sharing resources, ideas, and information for the common good. The following infographic demonstrates why the world of education must follow suit and introduce collaborative learning at primary school, to ensure it comes naturally to students by the time they hit secondary school and beyond.
Effective collaborative learning does not necessarily come easy. And, making a move to a new kind of learning experience may require a change of mindset for everyone involved. However, with employers seeking candidates who already know how to work in a culture of cooperation and co-creation, teachers cannot prepare pupils for long-term career success without inspiring student collaboration.
