Developed over four years in cooperation with over 60 organisations and individuals across the sector, Enabling Enterprise’s Skills Builder Framework looks at eight essential skills that children and students need so that they can succeed in life: listening, presenting, problem-solving, creativity, staying positive, aiming high, leadership, teamwork. It takes each of these eight skills and breaks them down into teachable and learnable nuggets - from the age of three through to adulthood. It has been used by 10,000 teachers and over 200,000 children to date.
Enabling Enterprise has also created a toolkit for employers that offers advice for embedding the essential skills, the Framework and the principles into work with young people. CET supported a project to develop enhanced training to teachers which ultimately contributed to the framework (see Recent Grants).
