Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for careers lessons around the idea of improving attendance.
I certainly believe that once a student has a plan or direction that their behaviour and attendance improves but just looking for some resources to run group sessions.
I am looking to get the local jobcentre to come in and give a talk about how much harder they are making their lives if they don’t have good attendance or fall “off the radar” with their education. This “wake up call” would be followed up by positive reinforcement in the form of making a new plan instead. The ultimate message being that to get to where you want to be, you need to improve your attendance.
I am also going to show them examples of disciplinary action being taken against those who have attendance issues in a job and job applications that require you to put attendance/missing days on the application.
Any help would be most appreciated in the form of ideas, lessons, videos.
