Vocation, Vocation, Vocation 2nd November 2012

Teaching the skills required to help students set foot upon the right career path is an often a big undertaking. So we thought we would offer a little inspiration through our latest featured resources all about vocational skills.

The first resource - Food preparation for healthy eating from Scotland's Colleges provides the budding caterer with help and guidance on preparing healthy food. This is an IMS Content Package, so can be viewed in a VLE or IMS Content Packaging editor like RELOAD.

If you're into cars, the next resource - Interactive Quiz (Automotive) incorporates a fun quiz that grabs the attention and tests the knowledge of students in the Automotive area using Powerpoint. This engaging resource has been shared by LSN (Learning and Skills Network), Q Projects, and West Hertfordshire College.

Onto something completely different - Perming African Carribean Hair. This video was created as part of a series filmed in conjunction with Mimas' Hairdressing Training and The Manchester College. Responding to community requirements for more resources on African and African Caribbean hair, this video brings requested content to life through step-by-step guidance. And, with over 3000 hits (growing daily) on YouTube, you can see why it was produced.

The Journey from Graduate Engineer to Incorporated or Chartered Engineer from Lisa Cranfield - HE STEM aims to provide a definitive guide to introduce students to the career and personal benefits of acquiring Chartered or Incorporated Status. It was also intended that, by becoming familiar with the skills required of a chartered professional, this would increase students’ awareness and understanding of employability skills. A valuable resource for all students in the engineering field.

If all that was a little too much to take in at once, then how about taking a look at our final featured resource and finding out about head massage. This video shared by Jennifer Barnes at Blackburn University Centre shows massage techniques for the face and neck via an easy to follow video.

This is just a small selection of the vocational resources shared with Jorum.
