Who we are

The Skills to Shine Journey started in 2010 working with 131 young people in the first year, since then we have worked with more and more young people each year through raising funding, corporate sponsorship and trading with educational institutes.

Skills to Shine makes learning real, relevant and inspiring and we are committed to exploring and define new, innovative and creative ways of engaging young people in thinking about their career options and supporting them to gain skills needed for the world of work such as communication, confidence, team work and self management.

 

What we do

Skills to Shine engages young people in project-based enterprise activities, which aim to introduce them to a broad range of career and employment opportunities available to them.

The projects help to raise young people’s aspirations and increase their motivation, drive and desire for learning, whilst instilling the belief in them that they can achieve in whatever career or employment path they choose. In doing so, these activities help to enhance young people’s employability skills and economic wellbeing.
