New World. New Skills - Virtual Schools Series

Helping students develop their skills for the future

Welcome to PwC’s New World. New Skills - Virtual School Series, our virtual skills programme.

Designed for secondary school students, this programme aims to support students in developing their skills for the future and making the most of their potential in their chosen career.

About the series

We’ve developed two programmes, aimed at different age groups, covering topics to help students develop key employability skills such as teamwork and problem solving. The learning materials have been designed for use by teachers and careers leaders in the classroom and include short pre-recorded videos as well as materials to assist with further learning on the topics covered. Each programme consists of six sessions, designed to be delivered over a period of six weeks.

We’ve also created a ‘Dragons’ Den’ version of the programme which provides an opportunity for students, across both age groups, to try out their entrepreneurial skills. In this programme, students are presented with a problem and encouraged to develop ideas to solve it, before presenting their pitch to their teacher and classmates. The learning materials for each of the nine sessions include a bite size (5-10 minute) pre-recorded video, delivered by PwC staff, along with tasks to be completed in the classroom.

All the videos in the series can be viewed ‘on demand’, giving you the flexibility to use the materials in a way that best suits you and your students. The materials that you need to deliver each programme can be accessed below, including a detailed teacher handbook.

For schools in England, this programme will support you in meeting seven out of eight Gatsby Benchmarks.
