Using the Toolbox

Getting started

Much of the text in this website is divided into thematic units (shaded in light blue when you hover over the text):

Click on the Toolbox icon (shown below) attached to all unitised content to gain access to all the great features. Simply click on the icon again or press the 'escape' key to close it. (N.B. The Toolbox can only be opened for one unit at a time.)

Toolbox in action

What can I do with the Toolbox?


Search for website content produced by the EEE Project addressing the same educational themes, narrowing your search by clicking on one or more of the themes presented to you.


View content not produced by the EEE Project, but related to the unit (which could be either a web page, video, audio, document or a graphical image) narrowing your search by clicking on one or more of the themes presented to you.


You can read comments and opinions left by other users or give your opinion on what you have just read which will be gratefully received and moderated by us and then posted on the site.


Send the specific unit of text that interested you to a friend or colleague or submit it to your favourite social networking site.

 Search, Print, Help and Icons only

You can carry out a site wide word or text Search, Print the unit on its own without wasting paper and ink , get Help at anytime on using our Toolbox, or choose to display the Toolbox with Icons only.

Tell us what you think

We have designed this site to be as easy to use and intuitive as possible. However if you have any problems or comments, we would love to hear from you via the Get involved section.

We would also like to hear from you if you run an education project that you feel addresses the challenges identified in Effective Education for Employment, or if you know of any key studies or pioneers in the field who we can learn from. We are constantly looking for input as well as educational projects which we can support and promote, so please do get in touch with us if this applies to you.

Don't forget to keep in touch with the progress of Effective Education for Employment Project by subscribing to our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
