Skills Summary is an easy to use online tool that measures the skills young people gain by participating in non-formal education, such as volunteering, youth work and other out-of-school opportunities. Many of the people who use the tool are young people who were not catered for by formal education or have been disadvantaged, but Skills Summary provides a neatly designed and accessible way for young people, and those who support them, to evidence their skills, knowledge and progress.
This resource offers an insight into just some of the ways organisations have shared with us about how they are using Skills Summary to support their work. We hope it will inspire you in your work, and as always please do reach out to us for support or to share how you are using Skills Summary in your work.
