LESSON OVERVIEW

In this lesson, students discuss the idea of a global skills passport presented in the article, and practise vocabulary related to the topic.

C1 / Advanced30 minCritical Reading ClubUnlimited Plan

This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.

ACTIVITIES

First students list some ways for employers to ensure that they hire the best candidates. Then, students read a short description of a digital badge and think of two benefits and two drawbacks of the idea. After that, they complete gaps with verbs in the box (e.g. accredit, benchmark, validate) in the correct form. They also discuss whether the statements from the task are true for today’s job market and if a global skills passport would change that. Finally, they brainstorm the challenges that a global skills passport might face, and compare that idea with what LinkedIn provides.

    Hello, I have upgraded my subscription for this lesson but the Article link doesn’t work…says access denied. Can you help please.

    1. Stan

      Hi! We don’t restrict the access to the articles so the link works without a subscription as well. The article itself can be found here: https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2022/05/global-skills-passport-trust-workforce/. If you get the message after accessing that link, please contact us via chat and we will see how we can help.

          It’s due to your location – it seems that website is blocked in France. I sent you an email with a workaround.

Questions

Title separator

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
