Focusing tightly using the framework

Watch the video on leadership. Does it give you any ideas about how you could teach step 3 of leadership to your students?

The Skills Builder framework is a way of linking these experiences together by using a standardised language. Using the framework, you can:

  • assess which step your student or students are working on
  • decide what their next step should be.

So you can work out what level your students are at, and then what they need to do to get to the next step. Once you know this, you can focus on specifically teaching this gap in their skills.

For example, imagine that you want to teach step 3 of ‘leadership’:

‘I manage dividing up tasks between others in a fair way.’

What would students need to know before you can explicitly teach this step?
