Earn a recognised qualification while learning an essential skillset for moving into independence.

Moving on into independence can be daunting. Little things can seem major if you've not confronted them before: opening a bank account, keeping a car well-maintained, or how to ensure good food hygiene are just a drop in the ocean. What if we could help you get your head round loads of this stuff while you earn a recognised qualification in the process? This is what Skillz sets out to do. Before long, you'll be confident and comfortable in new areas to take with you in life as well as a qualification for your CV!
