How does your school embed employability skills into the curriculum? Whether practising problem solving skills, creating a stand out CV, or experiencing the workplace virtually, there are many ways to prepare students for the world of work.

Barclays LifeSkills aims to help all people in the UK, whether that’s a young person developing skills and preparing for their first job, to someone wanting to progress in their career, make changes to their working life or even start their own business.

Employability resources give young people tools, tips and the confidence to take on whatever the future holds. Plus, through our dedicated educator hub with customisable dashboard and tailored educator support, you can weave employability skills into your lesson planning with ease.

LifeSkills also offers a suite of money skills lesson plans and resources for students aged 11 and over as well as financial literacy lessons for primary school pupils aged seven to 11 to help develop good money habits now that will benefit them in the future.

If you’re looking for CPD, you can enrol in the ‘Embedding employability skills in the curriculum’ course from LifeSkills on the Tes institute platform here.
