Leadership for Essential Skills: Transforming Essential Skills Across a Whole School
The Enabling Enterprise (EE) Skills Builder Framework helps schools embed the teaching of eight essential skills - Listening, Presenting, Problem Solving, Creativity, Staying Positive, Aiming High, Leadership and Teamwork - with as much rigour as other parts of the curriculum. The shared language and outcomes for the eight essential skills allows schools to support skill development in young people in a coherent and joined up way.
Through grants from CET from 2015-18 Enabling Enterprise learned how to support teachers to transform the essential skills of their students. This critical next project aims to create the equivalent toolkit for school leaders, to drive change at the level of a whole school. As part of this EE will create, publish and promote a School Leaders’ Handbook which is a toolkit to help embed the Essential Skills in the Skills Builder Framework at a whole school level.
