PwC Online Employability Skills Toolkit

Target audience - Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old)
Our Online Employability Skills Toolkit has been created for teachers and careers professionals to choose from a wide selection of lessons that can be quickly and easily delivered to a class or group of students: whether as a virtual lesson or as a resource for students to access individually.

Currently, the toolkit includes a number of programmes on technology, financial literacy, and wellbeing with plans to add further content (including on employability skills) in the coming months. Each lesson pack comes ready to deliver with a lesson plan, a facilitator guide and a presentation.

You’ll also have access to Tech We Can - a set of lesson packs designed to inspire more children, especially girls, to see the possibilities that a career in technology can bring. Populated with role model videos, classroom tasks and homework activities, the lesson plans are all focused on a different area of technology like Health and Inclusion, Safety and Security and Manufacturing and Engineering. They do not require a tech background to teach.

You may wish to share this resource with parents/carers for use at home over the next few months. We have added guidance to the toolkit website on using the materials at home.
