The Outcomes Star for work and learning

Copyright: Triangle Consulting Social Enterprise Limited

The Work Star is designed for use with adults out of work or returning to the workplace.

The original Work Star was developed by Triangle with service providers and commissioners from Camden, Islington and Kensington and Chelsea Borough Council, with the development funded through the Learning and Skills Council (LSC). The 3rd Edition of the Star was published in 2017 with input from the Department of Work and Pensions (Essex Social Justice Team), Prospects, Hounslow Council and The LightBulb.

The Work Star is a holistic tool and covers seven key outcome areas linked to employability and employment:

  1. Job skills and experience
  2. Aspiration and motivation
  3. Job-search skills
  4. Stability
  5. Basic skills
  6. Workplace and social skills
  7. Health and well-being

The Work Star is underpinned by a five-stage, ten-step Journey of Change:

1-2 Stuck
3-4 Accepting help
5-6 Believing and trying
7-8 Learning
9-10 Self-reliance

Full resources are available for organisations with a Star Licence and training for all workers and managers using the Star. This Star is also available in Welsh.
