Supporting the development of skills in young people

This World Youth Skills Day is the third year of promoting awareness for the growth of skills in the future generations.

Supporting the development of skills in young people

 

 

 

 

Across the 40 years of providing career and professional instructor training, Rockley has excelled at delivering outdoor classroom adventurous learning for schools and groups.

Rockley passionately supports the joint view of WorldSkills and the United Nations that everyone should have the opportunity to discover and develop their talents.

PE Teacher at Ringwood School, Jonny Owen comments on how powerful it can be for young people to participate in watersports for the first time; “It is the confidence they develop and life skills they learn. You can’t put a cap on a student’s confidence and how that will translate when they come back into school.

“For some students, their limits are nowhere near touched within the four walls of a classroom. It’s not until they are faced with sailing or white-water rafting where they realise what they can achieve.”

The De Ferrers Academy frequently take residential school trips with Rockley, when asked what they believe to be the best aspect of the trip for the children, they commented: “Being independent but being taught the skills first to enable them to do this.”

World Youth Skills Day promises to raise awareness of the essential need for young people to develop skills. Through the power of skills individuals, communities and countries are propelled towards a more prosperous future.

The United Nations, at its General Assembly in November 2014, declared 15 July as World Youth Skills Day.

The UN designated day seeks to generate greater awareness of and discussion on the importance of technical, vocational education, and training and the development of other skills relevant to both local and global economies. It is hoped that it will contribute to reducing unemployment and underemployment among the youth across the globe. It will highlight youth skills development to draw attention to the critical need for marketable skills.
