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.
Teach A Man To Fish helps young people to gain the knowledge, skills and experience that will enable them to get a decent job or create their own job when they leave school. They guide students and their teachers, step by step, to set up a fully-functioning school business that is both educational and profitable. They have started using the Skills Builder Framework for students and teachers to measure their progress through the programme in South Africa, and are planning to use it in other countries in the near future.
How they use the Skills Builder Framework
Explicit and consistent use of language from Framework
Connecting with partners around common skills
Audit of existing programme content
Assessment of programme impact
Reflection with learners on programme experience
Training for delivery team
Additional offer to schools (e.g. Hub resources)
Increase specificity and focus within programme (e.g. refer to specific steps, rather than whole skill)
Measuring learner baseline to differentiate programme/intervention
Sharing best practice with other skills-building organisations
Development or co-creation of new content
