WISE has developed online training for companies to accompany the My Skills My Life resource.
The training platform has been designed to ensure all ambassadors are clear on the methodology of the resource and expected outcomes, to ensure the message to girls is quality controlled and all messages are aligned.
My Skills My Life is designed to be complimentary to and supportive of other outreach programmes. The activity can be done as a standalone or in addition to other outreach activities as a hook for girls to see that STEM is for them.
The training focuses on the awareness of unconscious bias and how that affects young people, the background to the resource and how to deliver the resource in a classroom or at an event.
The 2 simple modules talk you through the process and include easy to follow tasks to enhance your understanding. It takes about 90 minutes to complete both modules.
The training guides you through the online and paper resource and provides tips and suggestions on how to deliver this in the classroom and includes examples of the resource being used in other settings such as fairs, events etc.
Additional resources including PowerPoint Presentations, safeguarding information, permission letters for schools have been provided to support you in delivering sessions.
The online training is also supplemented with a bespoke 1 hour webinar on integrating My Skills My Life into your outreach programme.
If you are a company/organisation you can obtain logins for your outreach staff. You will be provided with a company account on the platform. The main account holder will be able to:
- Add employees to the platform so that they can access the training
- Track the number of employees who have started the training and their progress through the modules
- Track the number of sessions they have completed
- The details of when and where the sessions were delivered
- Track the number of girls they have reached
- Use My Skills My Life for marketing purposes
Delivery Options Available
- Online training available for 30
- Face-to-face training for 15 (includes access to the online training platform)
“The My Skills My Life training was well run and informative. If you have never seen any information on My Skills My Life prior to the training, don’t worry, as everything is covered from concept to how to run a My Skills My Life session in a school. I really liked the fact we did a practical example of working through the different types of roles we would be role models for and then were taken through the various literature we can use at sessions. I left the training feeling equipped and inspired to start setting sessions up to help inspire more girls into STEM. Thank you WISE!”
