Level 7

Level 7, created in 2010 by Careersbox (UK - http://www.careersbox.co.uk), is a modular job application and interview techniques film programme. Aimed at students who are preparing for the world of work, who are often confronted with a disconnect in what is expected by the commercial world and what resources are available to the education world, this project is meant to better prepare and inform young people around the expectations of an employer whilst supporting teachers with an engaging technology based platform to help them do their job more effectively.

This program is designed to offer real employer feedback to help guide young people (aged 14-17) into the world of work. They, as well as information, advice and guidance professionals across all UK schools can use the resources. Due to its delivery method (online, as well as embedded in to schools’ Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs), on DVD), Level 7 has been used in a number of contexts but its primary use has been in careers guidance, citizenship and work readiness classes and it can be used in the classroom, at home or with parents or other key influencers.
The pay-off for the employer audience is better prepared applicants who can make the most of their opportunity to join an organisation and Level 7 can help young people raise their confidence levels when seeking employment.

A more detailed description of the project is available in the Showcase on the MEDEA Awards website: http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/level-7

Teachers TV

Teachers TV was the digital channel for everyone who works in schools. Its programmes covered every subject in the curriculum, all key stages and every professional role – from teaching assistant to headteacher. You could watch it on digital cable and satellite and programmes are also available anytime, on-demand and for free on this website. Sadly, along with many other well-known UK agencies active in the education and training sphere including Becta, Teachers TV has fallen foul of cutbacks in UK spending. From the end of March 2011 this terrific source of free education videos and resources aimed at the professional development of teachers has no longer been available.

Luckily its resources are now available on
- TES: http://www.media-and-learning.eu/resource/tes-connect-video-resources
as well as other repositories:
- Promethean Planet: http://www.prometheanplanet.com/en-gb/professional-development/best-prac...
