Building Essential Skills

Supporting your students to build skills

As a partner of the Skills Builder Partnership, Careerpilot makes reference to eight essential skills that students need to build to prepare them for the world of work, whatever job they choose to do; Teamwork, Leadership, Speaking, Listening, Aiming High, Staying Positive, Creativity and Problem Solving.

You will see the skills referenced as part of the Careerpilot Skills Profile as well as on our dedicated skills page, with links to the Skills Builder Framework which breaks these skills down into individual steps to support progression. We have also recently been accredited with Skills Builder Level 3 Impact award in recognition of supporting students to practice their skills as part of our careers lessons.

As a careers lead or careers advisor, you can access teaching resources to support building these skills further with your students at
