This brilliant programme is designed to help the schools develop the Cutlers' " Made in Sheffield" skills: character, core skills and higher level skills. The higher level skills are focused around a plan, do, review cycle ( planning and exploring, organising and implementing and reviewing and learning) and focus on critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork. The real difference in the approach we are developing is that the whole project has been developed with Sheffield employers who are committed to working with the schools to create employable, 'ready for work' young people with a passion for work!
- 'basic skills': literacy, numeracy, creativity and communication;
- character, resilience and grit;
- higher level skills: teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking;
- a quality experience of the world of work.
