In response to the increasing online presence of youth work, we have developed a new activity resource to accompany the Skills Summary tool when working online with young people. The resource contains five activities, which can be facilitated in an online space between a youth worker, or a significant adult, and a young person.
The nature of the resource remains in line with the existing Skills Summary Guide for Youth Work Organisations. The aim of these activities is to support a young person to connect with the Skills Summary tool, and to develop an understanding of how Skills Summary can help them document their growth and progress in a practical manner.
- Introduction to the tool in an online space, aimed towards self-directed use of the tool
- Developing the digital literacy useful in employment
- Maximising the potential of Skills Summary by using it collaboratively with other online tools
- Creating the groundwork for action on cultivating personal skills
