Each skill is broken down into 16 progressive steps
Each skill is broken down into 16 progressive steps allowing the framework to be used across a range of levels and age groups – from primary up to professional development in the workplace. Each step for every skill is supported by a range of resources and teacher training – both via the framework and in person from Skills Builder coaches.
This particular project focussed on using the Skills Builder Framework in primary school education and produced a suite of projects to be delivered in lesson time for year groups in Year 1 to Year 6 (ages 5 to 11); a set of fully resourced whole school Challenge Days – for use in KS1 and KS2; as well as a full programme of teacher training.
Starting the process of Making Education Relevant
The use of PBL resources in primary school starts the process of making education relevant, linking education to the real world and developing employer engagement at this early stage.
The framework not only provides resources and activities to develop essential and employability skills but also gives teachers a means to assess and track how these skills are being developed
