Employability Skills

Skills for Life and Learning

In September we launched a new school and college wide reward system based on a set of 7 (and an extra 1 for college students) key skills we want all of our students to practice. We worked with colleagues in further education colleges, employers and careers services and have identified 8 important skills that we need to learn when we are young, which helps us as adults.


When students earn rewards, they get house points and an individual mention in celebration assemblies. Class teams have created visual charts to help them learn which skills they have shown. We are really excited about our Skills for Life and Learning and celebrate all the amazing skills our students have shown us already.
