Education Unlocks Skills and Employment

There are 1.2 billion young people aged 15-24 years in the world, around one-sixth of the global population. 

Education is critical in providing the life skills young people need for a rapidly changing and complex world.

With links to subjects such as PSHE and citizenship, these fun and flexible activities for ages 7-11 explore the skills young people need to be effective change makers in their lives, their communities and the world around them. 

  • Think critically about your personal skillset.  
  • Work collaboratively to rank different types of skills according to how important they are. 
  • Consider how skills and jobs can help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Discuss what and who can help us to learn skills and investigate potential barriers.
  • Take action to develop your own skills and those of the people around you.
