The workshops

Rise is working in partnership with The Talent Foundry to deliver skills workshops to students at schools in areas of low social mobility.

These skills workshops link core curriculum subjects to the Skills Builder framework and are set within the context of business.

What does the workshop involve?

The Seven Steps to Rise is a carousel of challenges designed for students aged between 14 to 16 that will test and engage them to work collaboratively and in ways that are both familiar to the classroom and relevant to the workplace.

The workshop takes place over 3 hours and is delivered by one of The Talent Foundry’s facilitators. Supporting the workshop will be volunteers from the employers involved in Rise.
