In the English Grammar Profile, point 96 in Modality with adjectives in the iWeb corpus connects to clauses, noun + verb.

The most common people are students, children, parents, employees and consumers that need to be aware, have something, understand, know, learn or realise something.  The big concept that comes out across this grammar structure is awareness.  It would be good to teach the students passives and other adjectives with this structure too.
