The Essential Skills Academy is a series of ten workshops aimed at supporting groups of individuals to reflect on and develop their essential skills in the workplace. It provides in-depth insight into the eight essential skills and space for individuals to identify their existing strengths and areas for development. Participants complete a number of online self-assessments across the workshop series using Skills Builder Benchmark; the results of which are used to set and review skill targets which they focus on throughout their placement or in the workplace. The Universal Framework is embedded throughout the programme and Skills Builder Launchpad is an important tool used to help individuals build their knowledge in the skills alongside the workshops.

The overall aim is to support individuals to identify, demonstrate and articulate their skill set, ultimately making meaningful progress in the essential skills over the course of the Academy.
