We’re Part of the Skills Builder Partnership

The Skills Builder Universal Framework shows how to build essential skills at every stage of life. At UTC Olympic Legacy Park, we believe that employability skills need to be developed and explicitly taught alongside the core curriculum, which is why we are part of the Skills Builder Partnership.

Through tutor time activities and our rewards programme, we make sure students are aware of the key skills that employers need and that will give them the edge in their chosen career path. Skills Builder is an award winning rapidly-growing global partnership. The Partnership brings together more than 700 organisations towards a common mission, joined by shared language, principles and outcomes.

Over the next few weeks on social media, we will share some of the key areas of the framework that our students have been working on developing, including the following:

  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Problem-solving
  • Creativity
  • Staying positive
  • Aiming high
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork

More information can be found at www.skillsbuilder.org/about which gives you details of how employers, schools and other organisations become involved. You can also find further details of the framework that our UTC students work through.
