Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
As a global business operating in over 70 countries around the world, BP want to help all their people develop a shared understanding of how to get the best out of each other. The Skills Builder Framework neatly complements the employability skills sought in employees at BP, so they are mapping their free BP Educational Service teaching resources against the Framework, to make it clear where the resources can be used by teachers to develop particular skills at different levels..
How they use the Skills Builder Framework
Explicit and consistent use of language from Framework
