Talk About Skills

The UK’s first e-learning platform dedicated to personal development and soft skills

Transform the way your students engage and develop winning skills through Talk About Skills

Talk About Skills is an e-learning platform designed to improve soft skills, personal development and the mental wellbeing of young people in education or in the early stages of their careers.

Why Talk About Skills?

Talk About Skills was designed in response to both the Gatsby Benchmarks, and the recent struggles schools have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike other e-learning platforms, Talk About Skills is tailored to enhance your pupils’ personal development and soft skills through a variety of online courses such as digital footprint, financial literacy and finding your passion.

We are dedicated to helping students realise their passions and career goals and providing them with the relevant transferable skills needed to achieve them. To reward them for their hard work they will receive badges and certifications that can be referenced on their personal development plans and CVs.

We also run engaging programmes that we can deliver remotely, building on the previous work we’ve done with corporates. These include topics like back to school, entrepreneurship, and ‘Talk About change’ which engages pupils with equality, diversity & inclusion.
