The SKILL! Programme is a series of interactive workshops helping London students to develop key skills for the future and equipping them with a greater understanding of how those skills can enhance their employability. The programme focusses on enterprise as a creative, accessible and aspirational means of engaging young people in core soft skills.
Launched in May 2008 by young entrepreneur Patrick Philpott, the SKILL! Programme is produced by Visionpath® Education in association with a number of key corporate partners. Our workshops are high-energy one-day learning experiences delivered by expert facilitators and trainers, with professionals from our corporate partners taking on the role of mentors, aiding students’ learning throughout the programme. The SKILL! Programme also enjoys the support of many successful entrepreneurs, who inspire students and provide insight to support their learning.
Since launching in May 2008, the SKILL! Programme has worked with c.1000 young people in London and Bristol through 15 SKILL! Workshops, details of which can be found under the Workshops section of the site.
The 2012 SKILL! Programme is produced in partnership with leading employers including Addleshaw Goddard, Europe Arab Bank, FTI Consulting, Milbank, Oriel Securities, Osborne Clarke, PwC, Simmons & Simmons and Standard Bank.
