City of Peterborough Academy

Skills Builder

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:

  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Problem solving
  • Creativity
  • Staying positive
  • Aiming high
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork

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.
