Equip students for the 21st century workplace with new teaching resources


Dear teacher

The Government is placing increasing emphasis on the importance of developing students’ resilience, grit and character1. Skills which employers are actively looking for in new recruits.

To support you, we’ve developed a suite of new resources to help you deliver these 21st century skills in your teaching and get your students ready for the future workplace.

Remember that the LifeSkills employability programme is suitable for 11-24 year olds and is completely free for you to use, with all resources curriculum-linked to help you embed employability easily into your lessons.

By signing up to LifeSkills you’ll be able to download our 21st century skills lesson plan packed full of activities and worksheets.

And watch this space for two additional new resources coming soon:


Discover the trends and skills that could shape your students’ future
Explore jobs of the future in emerging labour markets

The recent launch of the BBC micro:bit also provides a great opportunity to get your students excited about making and undertaking hands-on projects which help them develop 21st century skills like problem solving, creative thinking and communication. Check out our introduction to the micro:bit here. For access to all this and more curriculum-linked resources, all you have to do is sign up. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to LifeSkills*.
