Children and young people need to be proficient in the eight essential skills in order to thrive at every stage - from the classroom, to the lecture hall, to the boardroom.
Students need to be equipped with the essential skills to succeed - to truly equip children for the future, we must start building these skills from Primary age. We've worked to make it possible for every teacher to start quickly building the essential skills of their children and young people.
“ I believe that a focus on the eight skills played a big role in the success of my GCSE Citizenship classes' exam results. ”

Citizenship and History teacher, Mount Grace School
“ The eight skills are vital for life-long learning and if we can fit in as many opportunities as possible to sign-post children to these skills in as many different contexts and scenarios that is going to have a great impact on our children. ”
Rosie Hancock -
Year 5 teacher, Morecambe Bay Primary School
