Upskill Me for every student

Upskill Me

We are delighted to be launching a partnership with Upskill Me, a digital portfolio platform for young people to track their skill development and showcase their talents.

Our Career Builder sessions come built-in to the Upskill Me platform so, as a follow-up activity, you can encourage your students to log their experiences and reflect on what they’ve learnt through taking part in Career Ready activities.

Like our resources, Upskill Me is absolutely free to schools and students. To find out more about adopting Upskill Me in your school, please visit: upskillme.io.
