Year nine pupils at Kelvin Hall School are being given the opportunity to take part in a project to design a professional board game.
The board game will develop their creativity, enterprise and employability skills.
Erica Hood, Education, Employment and Training Manager at Kelvin Hall School, said: “The aim of the game is to give pupils total control over the product that they produce; the messages it gives, and essentially, the employment skills that they themselves must develop. The board game project will help pupils to gain knowledge of the skills required in the local labour market and promote commercial awareness. It will also help them further their team-working and digital literacy skills.”
PBS Construction are sponsoring the employability skills programme for the year nine pupils.
Erica said: “Taking part in this project is a great opportunity for the pupils as it will encourage them to consider, and work on, the different employability skills that will be vital for them in later life, such as when applying for college, university or applying for a job.
