SkillForce is a national education charity. Our mission is to empower children and young people to make positive choices and feel ‘comfortable in their own skin’, building confidence, resilience and good character using the skills and experience of ex-Services personnel.
We provide a range of innovative award programmes delivered by predominately ex-Services personnel to children and young people aged 5-19.
SkillForce believes that a clear set of positive moral values is essential to young people developing a strong sense of self. We particularly value courage, respect, integrity, honesty, kindness and compassion. These moral values will help us to support the young people, our staff and our stakeholders to make positive choices and dare to be their best selves.
“Our work transforms the lives of children and young people. It also has a profound impact on our former military personnel who have left the armed forces and now channel their skills into inspiring children to succeed and supporting teachers.”
Ben Slade, Chief Executive, SkillForce.
