‘All About Me’ is a programme which coaches teenagers in state schools and sixth form colleges on communication and presentation skills. We connect employers with secondary schools and colleges and provide a framework for them to give their time voluntarily to coach students online or to share their career stories. Having direct connections to people from the world of work is highly inspirational for our young people.
Through the programme students learn to develop their self-presentation and communication skills, so vital for the modern world of work. Additionally, students increase their self-awareness leading to more informed career and next steps choices, raising aspirations and increasing take-up of further education.
“Year on year, employers report that communication is the skill that is most frequently lacking in new recruits to the workplace, school leavers and graduates.” ican.org.uk
