My Skills, My Future is a suite of resources aimed at supporting individuals in identifying the skills they have gained from other experiences outwith formal qualifications.
The resources are aimed primarily at young people who have left, or may be about to leave school with few or no formal qualifications. However, it can also be used with young people who may have been made redundant from their first job, adult returners or the long term unemployed.
Advisers from a wide range of organisations can use these resources with individuals over one or more sessions to identify their transferable skills through a series of practical and engaging activities. These skills are then bench-marked against the SCQF to help individuals understand the level of their informal learning.
The resource also helps them to develop a set of competency based statements that can be used in a CV, to access further training or to use in job applications. Individuals can then work with advisers to agree on a future plan of action based on their strengths.
Excellent training course, the trainer themselves was very clear and articulate, and having the chance to actually use the Toolkit in the training session and have any questions answered was extremely beneficial.
Wasn’t sure what to think prior to the training but what a fantastic tool to be able to use. Thank you for making the training so enjoyable
My Skills, My Future workshop is an amazing toolkit, a programme designed for everyone interested in helping people around them discover their true potential. As a father I’m confident to use the Toolkit to help my children realise their skills. And as a management specialist, skills auditing should be an ongoing thing for businesses to maximise ROI
The day fully met my expectations and I thought the presenter was very engaging and clearly competent on the use of the MSMF Toolkit.
