This 3.5 hour in-person training is for all who would like to explore the potential of the digital Skills Summary tool for your youth work practice – whether you’re doing activities face to face or online.
With the rapidly changing landscape of employment opportunities, it’s necessary to recognise how important are transferrable life skills in the digital economy and future workforce.

- Welcome and introductions
- Icebreaker and warm up activities (which you can easily replicate and use with your young people after the training)
