Helping to ‘prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life’.
(National Curriculum England, Dec 2014). The
2013 Ofsted PSHE report
highlights the relationship between a school’s PSHE provision and overall effectiveness, noting:
"a close correlation between the grades that the schools in the survey were awarded for overall effectiveness
in their last section 5 inspection, and their grade for PSHE education…"
If PSHE lessons are observed as part of a Section 5 inspection, Ofsted will expect the same standards
of teaching and learning as they would in other subjects.
Here are examples of how business leaders can demonstrate the use of subjects in their companies
and how learning certain skills have helped them throughout their careers.
Most companies require a workforce which incorporates people who have maths skills,
many even hiring straight from sixth form due to a dearth of people who specialise
in this area.
Business leaders can directly demonstrate how mathematics ‘is essential to everyday
life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial
literacy and most forms of employment’ (National Curriculum, 16 July 2014).
