Foundation Backs Esh Group’s Building My Skills

More than 750 Secondary School pupils across the North East have benefitted from assemblies by Newcastle United Foundation coaches speaking about online appearance through the Esh Groupโ€™s Building My Skills Initiative.

The assemblies are the second stage of the programme that is delivered across the North East, North West, and Yorkshire and into Scotland.ย  By completing the programme pupils can earn the opportunity to be interviewed by employer partners at St Jamesโ€™ Park next year.

Building My Skills is delivered at no cost to schools, businesses and local authorities providing years 9 to 13 a rounded introduction to the world of work through regular timetabled business engagement sessions as part of the curriculum.

In the last academic year, Building My Skills has delivered over 44,300 learner engagement hours to over 8370 students in 71 schools. This academic year, Building My Skills is working in partnership with 80 schools, generating over 53,000 learner engagement hours engaging 11,000 students nationally.

Andy Foster, Schools Programme Manager at Newcastle United Foundation, said: โ€œItโ€™s really important for young people to understand how their online appearance can influence a college or an employerโ€™s impression of them. A positive online appearance can make the difference between getting a job or not.ย 

“Weโ€™re really proud to be working with Esh Group and the Added Value Team to once again support Building My Skills and weโ€™re really looking forward to the next stage of the process โ€“ interviewing the pupils at St Jamesโ€™ Park.โ€

Darush Dodds, of Esh Group, added: โ€œAt Esh Group we firmly believe in supporting the communities in which we work โ€“ and Building My Skills is at the core of work we do with young people.

โ€œWeโ€™ve found that by getting our own employees and partners into schools we can deliver valuable careers and employability advice, straight from the horseโ€™s mouth.

โ€œEsh Group is always open to working with other business to help give young people insight into workplaces. Itโ€™s also highly rewarding for those delivering the sessions.โ€
