InterAct

Wider Application

The InterAct model offers substantial flexibility and can be used for a broad range of applications aimed at both lower and higher-level skills acquisition. The scripts, which drive the InterAct programme, can be tailored to suit any level of learner with any combination of strengths and weaknesses in their skills set. It is important, however, for each application of the model to work with groups in the same or similar sectors and which are at a similar skills level. The number of partners can vary for each application, with three or four being ideal. Examples of where InterAct could be effectively applied include:

  • other vocational areas where lack of these new basic skills is preventing people from obtaining or retaining work, or advancing in their career (for example, clerical, administration, or construction sectors)
  • school leavers looking for their first job who need to improve some of their core employability skills.
  • students as part of “enterprise education ”. Scripts can be written to focus on development of personal initiative, creativeness and entrepreneurship.
  • undergraduate students looking to begin their professional careers. Scripts can be tailored to act as a graduate entry type interview, work experience programme, or to play an engaging element of a vocational curriculum.
  • foreign language students , where opportunities to converse with native speakers in their own countries opens up many possibilities to enrich the learning experience.
  • students and adults with physical or mental disabilities . Where a flexible approach to timing and length of sessions suits their learning.
  • ex-offenders wishing to boost confidence and interpersonal skills in order to enter or re-enter the job market.

The programme will also work at a national or regional level, for example using organisations from within the UK or from within a particular region in the UK.
