My Skills My Life is unlike any other career tool out there – rather than focusing on the careers themselves, role models form the core of the resource. My Skills My Life showcases fantastic women working in STEM to your pupils.
You can tailor sessions to be flexible around your timetable and curriculum. You can lead sessions yourselves or invite ambassadors in to run these sessions, you can use our online bank of role model profiles or invite real life role models to join the sessions.
WISE have received funding from the 1851 Commission to train ambassadors to run the My Skills My Life programme across the country. This is a basic course providing you with the necessary resources to run a session. You will be able to run sessions with your students and invite role models into your school to join these. Access this here.
We have over 1,000 role models featured on our My Skills My Life platform and many of them are keen to support sessions in schools. If you would like to invite role models into your school as part of My Skills My Life sessions, please:
Complete our quiz to discover your personality types and see how your skills match up to STEM careers. Connect with real people who have the same personality as you. What do they do? What do they earn? How did they get there?
It’s all about your skills, and how you
can make them work for your life.
