Harrogate Grammar School is delighted to have been awarded a place on the Skills Builder Accelerator Programme this year. The Skills Builder Framework is now being used in more than 700 organisations who are part of the Skills Builder Partnership. It has been adopted by leading national programmes including the government-backed Careers & Enterprise Company, the National Citizen Service and is endorsed by the CBI.
Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 will be working with the Skills Builder Partnership to ensure every learner has opportunities to build essential skills to support them now and, in the future, using the Universal Framework which breaks each of these essential skills down into steps. Research has shown that building these essential skills can support the emotional wellbeing and academic success of young people, as well as preparing them for life beyond school.
