aligning the head, hand, & heart with the needs of the world

Our youth will grow up in a VUCA world where the possibility of disruption in every industry is the only constant. In an age of exponential technological advancement, your students need an education that prepares them to be more than workplace-ready; they need an education that makes them world-ready.

Skillseed courses equip youth with the complex competencies to thrive in the future, and craft each of our courses around these outcomes, which are aligned with Ministry of Education mandates, and backed up by studies from Google and experts from the Harvard Business Review. These include broad learning skills, being comfortable with uncertainty and diverse views, critical-thinking, entrepreneurial dare, empathy, and resilience - cultivated through experiential learning.
