YOUR GAMEPLAN

Your GamePlan provides free digital learning for school students focusing on improving their employability and transferable skills. In short, we have developed a platform to help young people transition from school to the workplace and widen their understanding of the career opportunities available to them. We believe every student should have access to careers and employability training, which is why our services are entirely free for schools and students.

Our platform includes:

  • Skills-based courses focused on enhancing your student’s employability and transferable skills. A full list is available here
  • Industry-based courses which are partnered with top UK employers. These will provide key insights in these industries and the career-options available to your students. This includes an ‘Introduction to Accountancy Careers’ course with our launch partner the ACCA.
  • Each course has been certified by the CPD and will be added individually to our CV builder once students complete them. 

All of this is available to you for free.

For any questions you have, email: emma@yourgameplan.co.uk
