Series of free job skills resources to support home-schooling and skill development

At the start of the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent nation-wide lockdown, the team at Innovative Alliance were determined to do something to try and support others. The IA team developed a series of free job skills resources. IA made these to support with personal development. They are available to everyone in bite-sized English and maths videos.

Consequently the adult education training provider utilised the skills of their tutors to develop these bite-sized videos. These free resources demonstrate how English and maths could be embedded in to everyday tasks. For example, working out how much paint was needed to decorate a room, how to write persuasively or how to burn calories.

Talking of the initiative, CEO Ian Green said;

“It is part of our ethos to give back and support others. These resources help us to do just that. We created some simple, easily accessible bite-size tools. These hopefully appeal to people of all maths and English abilities. Subsequently our team of tutors put their vocational knowledge and skills to good use. They had a lot of fun deciding on which theme to do next. The video about burning calories went down a storm!”

Where to find free online tools

All the videos have been published on the Innovative Alliance website as a free resource. These have been shared across their social media channels. Colleagues who home-schooled their children commented on how handy it was to have access too.

However the resources also had another purpose. In addition, the team also wanted to support individuals to improve their numeracy and literacy skills. Subsequently by making these resources free and open to all. IA have given individuals from all social-economic backgrounds the opportunity to develop themselves. More over, it is hoped that these resources will help to provide new knowledge and skills. Individuals will be able to apply these within the workplace. Finally, support them in gaining employment once the lockdown measures are lifted.

There are nine video resources created to date, all of which are available here.
