City of Peterborough Academy are delighted to have been chosen to work with the Skills Builder Partnership as a participant school of the Skills Builder Accelerator in the 2023-24 academic year.
Skill development is a core part of our City of Peterborough Academy Careers strategy.
We will be developing students’ employability skills in the following areas:
- Problem solving
- Staying positive
- Aiming high
Each skill has a series of Skills Builder level descriptors, so students are constantly developing their skills to higher levels.
Delivery of the Skills Builder Programme will take place through:
- Explicit teaching of skills in tutor time.
- Development and rehearsal of skills in PSHE lessons.
- Deliberate practice of skills in curriculum time.
- Evidencing of skills development through the Unifrog platform.
