Building Better Futures
This educational charity is passionate about inspiring young people to achieve the best they possibly can – and you could be part of it too.
skillForce is an educational charity that works in partnership with more than 150 schools across the Uk to help young people realise their potential and academic ability . With teams in Moray, Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen, Dundee, Fife, Lanarkshire, edinburgh and Forth Valley , skillForce has been working with schools in scotland for over 10 years. they work with pupils from S3 to over 16, helping them to stay engaged with education and improve their future prospects of employment. Many skillForce staff are ex-servicemen and women who use their extensive life experience and leadership skills to really engage and motivate young people, particularly those who have become disengaged with education and can be hard to reach.
Everyone at skillForce believes passionately in helping young people meet their potential – and their results are incredible: after working with skillForce, 88 per cent of young people who are entitled to free school meals (a recognised indicator of deprivation) go into further education, employment or training compared with 9 per cent nationally . their work is significantly reducing the number of young people becoming neet (not in education, employment or training) at 16.
To continue providing these services and helping young people achieve positive futures, skillForce need support from corporate partners. Businesses can help by providing funding, work experience and site visits for the young people, or pro bono support to develop staff and the young people. skillForce work with each partner individually and tailor the partnership to help businesses meet their corporate social responsibility objectives.As you visit ‘SkillForce’, you may find interest in following listings . . .
