Skills Champions share their stories
Our Skills Champions are young people from all walks of life, who have overcome different challenges throughout their lives in order to thrive and succeed – personally and professionally. Hear from them as they discuss how their choices shaped their journey and they offer valuable insights to young people who may find themselves in similar situations to them.
As organisations which strive to give young people the best possible start in work and life, WorldSkills UK has worked with the Careers & Enterprise Company and the Department for Education to share the stories of these inspirational role models. With a view to inspiring more young people to consider the full range of opportunities available to them and how anyone can overcome challenges to achieve their goals.
In order to bring the videos to life, we have developed a lesson plan for teachers - this can be used flexibly be as a resource, whether as part of a lesson or an assembly. It is aimed at promoting a positive discussion on key topics such as Choosing a Career, Dealing with Failure and What do Employers really want?
We hope you find our resources useful but if you have any feedback or suggestions for other content you would like to see please contact us at SkillsChampions@worldskillsuk.org
