At The Skills Lab we recognise that schools around the world need to change. We focus on helping radical change through the redesign of space, metrics and school systems. Our belief, backed up by research, is that schools that simply focus on improving test scores may well be failing their students. Today character traits are equally important and are highly correlated with academic success. Our systems help schools develop those skills for their students, measure them and improve them.
The Skills Lab brings ideas and people together to test new initiatives in education. Our aim is to create smart, simple and practical tools that facilitate cultural change in education to allow young people develop the skills they need to access wider life opportunities.
All our projects are collaborative. We work in partnership with leading organisations to create programmes of work that drive cultural change in education – so that the range of experiences that develop skills in young people can improve.
