Education Webinar: Creating Sustainable Change

In March, schools and colleges on a Skills Builder programme were invited to attend our third Education Webinar: Creating Sustainable Change.

The webinar began with an introduction from Skills Builder’s Emma Crighton who talked about how we recognise good practice in our schools and colleges through the Skills Builder Award. Emma outlines how the award was developed and how it is supporting our schools and colleges to embed long-term, sustainable essential skill development.

During the webinar, we talked to four of our schools and colleges about where they were in their Skills Builder journey, how they used the programme in their setting and their plans for 2021-22.

  • Menston Primary School who are working toward the Bronze Skills Builder Award
  • Goodwin Academy who are working toward the Silver Skills Builder Award
  • Chorleywood Primary who are working toward the Gold Skills Builder Award
  • Newcastle College who are working toward the Gold Skills Builder Award
