SkillForce is a charity that works in partnership with schools, drawing upon the skills of predominantly ex-Forces personnel, to inspire young people to succeed.
Since 2000, SkillForce has changed the lives of 50,000 young people in the UK, engaging the hard-to-reach, developing their skills, and preparing them for next steps in education, work or training.
We are working with 150 schools in England, Scotland and Wales. SkillForce’s approach is to Engage, Prepare and Develop, helping young people take the next steps in their lives.
SkillForce gets results because we understand that some students need a tailored approach.
The empathy and skills of our instructors (70% of whom are ex-Forces) engage young people and, working with the school, lift aspirations and levels of achievement.
Our instructors use activity-based learning in the classroom and activities beyond it to inspire. We have a range of programmes tailored to age group, the young person’s needs and the school or education provider. Our charitable fundraising subsidises the cost of our programmes in schools.
