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.
This partnership of twenty-nine arts, heritage, and cultural venues delivers programmes that promote the value of cultural and creative experiences to develop the fusion of creative, communication, thinking and organisational skills in young people that are needed by today’s employers. CML will use the Skills Builder Universal Framework to inform project design and delivery. It is also running a Challenge Prize with Foundation for Future London to find innovative solutions to the skills gap. The six competition Finalists are using the Universal Framework to hone their proposals.
