We know what it takes to enable young people to perform at their best. We develop young people across the UK through our skills development programme as part of Team UK to represent the United Kingdom on an international stage at the Skill Olympics.
Our Technical Masterclasses will help build confidence and new skills to give students and apprentices the cutting edge above their peers that will support them on their learning programme as they progress to higher technical learning or employment.
You can access the Technical Masterclasses from our Skills Development Hub.
