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.
The Apprentice Project's vision is to empower children in low-income schools to realise who they are and achieve what they want to be. They aim to do this by building essential skills and enabling real world exposure & opportunities using the child’s passion - through visual arts, performance arts, sports, or technical arts.
The Apprentice Project are working to align their workshop assessments and outcomes with the Skills Builder Universal Framework.
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
