Brings the world of work alive in your classroom

The skills you didn’t know you had!

The WOW Show releases new wellbeing resources

With student wellbeing such a priority The WOW Show and its partners VotesforSchools have teamed up with the City & Guilds Foundation to launch an exciting new film and classroom resources to help young people build self-confidence and show them why employers will welcome them.

Timed for the start of the new school year, this is a timely and positive reminder to them that if they can discover and develop their innate skills and talents their future prospects remain undiminished.

The animated film – The skills you didn’t know you had! – features a ‘cast’ of near-peer characters in everyday situations underlining messages about the skills that are inside us all – if only we recognise them: Resilience, Interpersonal skills, Leadership skills, Staying positive, Wellbeing and Self-belief.

The film follows on the success of our previous animation highlighting employability skills which has had more than 75,000 ‘views’ on our YouTube channel and has been enthusiastically used in schools around the country.

To accompany the film, VotesforSchools have prepared three interactive classroom-ready lessons that promote discussion and prompt students to gain further appreciation of their own skills. These lesson plans and PowerPoint lesson slides are structured to reflect the CDI Framework objectives and can be used without any prior preparation.

All the resources are free and you can get them here:
