Whether you support primary age children, learners with additional needs, or young people who just need things simplifying a little, this pack of cards will empower them to:
- Develop self-awareness
- Discover their own skills and qualities
- Improve their confidence and self esteem
- Understand how their day-to-day lives help them build essential skills
- Discover which activities could help them develop new skills
- Reflect on how their skills link to different jobs and careers
The cards are colour coded so young people can explore strengths related to their school subjects using the green cards, or their hobbies and life experiences using the purple cards. The words on each card link directly to one of the Skills Builder Essential Skills.
Each pack comes with an instruction leaflet which includes tips and ideas for using the cards as well as a link to the downloadable glossary. There are also suggested links for using the cards alongside other Skills Builder resources.
What makes this pack extra special is the amazing young people involved in its creation: the talented photography students at Nottingham College and the wonderful students (models!) at Carlton Digby School and Manor Green College.
