Prudential Skills For Life

Skills for Life is a fully-facilitated group employability programme for Year 12 supported by international financial services provider, Prudential PLC. 

The programme aims to explore students’ strengths and areas for development and how best to communicate these when applying for jobs, university or apprenticeships. 

Students work with mentors from Prudential at their Head Offices in Central London, exploring a series of interactive activities to understand topics such as communication skills, body language, and making a CV stand out.  At the end of each session, students make a pledge committing to how they will use the tools they learned about.

·      97% of students said they are now good at communicating their strengths to others.

·      93% of students said they are now more comfortable speaking about their hobbies and interests.

·      89% of students said they felt more comfortable working in a team.

  • 86% of students who took part in a previous programme felt better prepared for life after sixth form after taking part in the programme.
