The Got The Skills! game is focused on developing an awareness of skills which are required for work. It intends to get the player to recognise different skills which they may have, and to understand which skills and traits will help them get and keep employment.The player learns about desirable skills and traits that they need for the workplace, and examples of how those traits might manifest themselves or be used in the workplace to their advantage. Elements of the following sections from the CodeRED curriculum (http://codered-project.eu) are addressed:Unit 4 - Work preparation and sustainabilityoUnit 4.1- Looking for work: Getting to know your strengths and weaknessesoUnit 4.3 - Job interviews: The game provides scenarios that may be useful as examples of the use of particular skills that could be used in an interview scenario.oUnit 4.4 - Your rights and legislation: Some scenarios highlight rights of workers in the workplaceUnit 5 - Keeping your jobScenarios highlight positive traits to demonstrate at work and gives examples of how to handle work situations well. Scenarios highlight aspects of appropriate language, behaviour, time keeping and commitment.Unit 6 - Starting WorkScenarios address working with others, responsibilities and managing your workload.The Europe 2020 strategy identifies drop out from i-VET or early school leaving (ESL) as a key challenge to meeting employment targets. High rates of ESL are detrimental to making lifelong learning a reality and increase the risk of unemployment, poverty and social exclusion. ESL is over-represented among pupils with disabilities (61%), emotional/behavioural problems and migrants.Code RED is an exciting European project that has been developed in response to these high levels of early school leaving and drop-out and exclusion from education that often lead to unemployment, poverty and social deprivation. The project aims at working with these groups of students who are particularly at risk of exclusion from education or drop out. Therefore, the main aim of the project is to take actions towards addressing the high proportion of drop-out from i-VET (vocational and educational training).Details of the Code RED project:Agreement No: UK/13/LLP-LdV/TOI-6781236283_803930819621051_1017676006_nType: LLP-Leonardo-Transfer of InnovationStarting date: 01 Oct 2013Duration: 24 monthsCoordinator: Nottingham Trent University, Computing and Technology Team, School of Science & Technology, College of Science, Clifton Campus, Clifton Lane, Nottingham, NG11 8NSDisclaimerThe Code RED project (UK/13/LLP-LdV/TOI-678) has been partially funded under the Lifelong Learning program, sub-programme Leonardo Da Vinci, TOI.
