Careers Education Presentations – Young Professional Skills

Free teaching resources – help your students develop five key Young Professional skills for life and work

What are the five key life and work skills? Why are they important? How can young people develop them? These PowerPoint presentations help students and young people aged 14-24 develop their potential, strengths and prospects before entering the workplace.

Each presentation should take no more than ten minutes to run through. These resources have been written with KS4 students in mind, but you can adapt content to suit your audience. In addition to presentations on employability skills you’ll find an introductory presentation to complete the process.
