Building My Skills is an established careers information and employability programme delivered collaboratively by Esh Group and a number of regional, national, and international businesses. Together we support schools to deliver good career guidance which helps students develop their employability skills and make informed decisions about their future.
We will partner with secondary schools to provide a full year group of Year 9, 10, or 11 students with 5 timetabled business engagement sessions throughout the academic year.
Each workshop is delivered by a different business guest, providing students with insight into different sectors and information about a variety of careers. Through support and advice from business role models, students learn invaluable employability skills which they can transfer and develop in their future career. We also provide resources which help students build their employability portfolio and an opportunity to experience a mock interview.
In response to the pandemic, we have created a virtual version of the programme in order to safeguard its delivery and engage a larger audience. ‘Building My Skills Digital’ is available to education providers via a secure login.
