Everyone needs essential skills to succeed – whatever their path in life. That’s why we’re delighted to be joining the Skills Builder Partnership, which brings together educators, employers and skills-building organisations around a shared approach for building eight essential skills.
We’ll be supporting Skills Builder’s work with sports organisations, empowering them to rigorously build and measure essential skills like Teamwork and Aiming High according the Skills Builder Framework, which breaks each skill into clear teachable steps.
By working together, we will support many more sports organisations to ensure that every young person we support is building the essential skills to set them up for the rest of their lives.
The Skills Builder Partnership brings together educators and employers to support every child and young person to build their essential skills.
The Skills Builder Universal Framework provides the national standard for teaching essential skills. It breaks each skill into steps, supporting progress for students of all ages and abilities – including those with special educational needs.
As part of our partnership with Skills Builder, we’re delighted to have produced the Sports Toolkit, which supports young people and coaches to develop the essential skills that they need to succeed through sport.
Free and available to all, the handbook and toolkit provide a wealth of resources and guidance to help support and track skills development, helping athletes and coaches across a range of environments understand how they can progress and maxmise the skills that they develop.
Skills Builder “staying positive” video resources
Our partners at Skills Builder have developed a range of handy videos, covering the “staying positive” element of the Skills Builder framework. These encourage learners to apply the skill in real world situations, helping to reinforce positivity, particularly during this difficult period. Check them out!
