The Foundation for Young Australians’ (FYA) New Work Order (NWO) report series shows that we’re facing the biggest disruption to the world of work since the industrial revolution.
The reports highlight that the disruption brings opportunity for young people but only if we invest to ensure they have the skills, capabilities and mindset to overcome the challenges of the future.
NWO in the VCAL is a partnership between FYA and the Bayside Glen Eira Kingstong Local Learning Employment Network (BGKLLEN).
Developed through a co-design process with BGKLLEN partner schools and students, the toolkit has all the information required for educators to read the reports and facilitate meaningful activities and conversations.
It has been designed to equip students with the skills, knowledge and agency to confidently navigate the future of work, both as job creators and job seekers.
The toolkit is mapped to the VCAL curriculum (intermediate level) to ensure that the activities are embedded in classroom learning.
Appendix A of the toolkit has the full curriculum mapping and complete unit description.
The following key learning areas are covered:
The toolkit has been designed to provide a high level of flexibility so that you can tailor the program to fit your school context and time requirements. The original toolkit was released in 2017 and has since undergone a refresh to make the toolkit better suited to online and remote delivery.
The toolkit has been designed to suit the time required to implement a standard VCAL unit.
Each module has overall time estimates (eg 3 hours) and each lesson also has approximate times for delivery (eg 60 minutes) to allow you to plan the delivery according to your context.
New Work Order in the VCAL is a project powered by the Foundation for Young Australians and Bayside Glen Eira Kingston Local Learning Employment Network (BGKLLEN).
