Introducing upSKILL

Helping you build skills for the future and get noticed by top employers.

For 10 years we have been running workshops helping students become future-ready, so we like to think we know a thing or two about the skills that will help you succeed in school and work!

We have designed upSKILL with leading businesses, ensuring our one-day workshops give you the skillset employers find attractive in their future talent. Our experienced team deliver upSKILL in impressive business environments, so you can experience life inside real businesses while learning alongside the professionals who work there.

So what will you do at upSKILL?

For one day you'll work in small teams, supported by Team Mentors - employees of our corporate partners, who will bring their knowledge and experience to help you learn and develop.

You'll be part of an engaging, interactive day where you'll devise and pitch big ideas to change the world! You'll be trained in how to come up with new ways of thinking that solve problems in everyday life as well as learning how to communicate confidently and with impact. You'll also learn the basics of business planning, working closely with your Team Mentors to do this.

The result is that you will build the experience and skills to help you make that step from school to work. Best of all, upSKILL is completely free to attend! Sign-up below or get in touch for more information.
