A rapidly-growing global partnership.

The Partnership brings together more than 500 organisations towards a common mission, joined by shared language, principles and outcomes.

Integrating with schools in the UK and globally

We've created toolkits for schools, teachers, employers and organisations that offer advice for embedding the essential skills, the Framework and the principles into their everyday work with children and young people. You can download it for free.

Supported by brilliant employers

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.

Trip-hosting partners

Strategic partners

Our strategic partners financially support us to expand our work - either through developing new programmes or extending into new areas. We couldn’t grow without them and thank them for all their support.

A coalition of skills-building organisations

We're building a global coalition of skills-building organisations, all using the shared Skills Builder framework. As these skills are widely transferable, our partner organisations cover a whole range of different industries and outcomes.
