Provider Access Statement(*.pdf)
Millom School are participating in our Build My Skills (BMS) programme again this academic year. It helps young people prepare for future careers, working on key employability skills and knowledge.
The programme gives our students access to employers and helps to raise awareness of career options in sectors we know will be recruiting in the near future.
Build my Skills equips young people with the necessary skills and competences to have the best chance of successful careers. ‘Build My Skills’ embeds an understanding of the link between education and employment, it inspires students to look to the future, think about the jobs they may like and focuses on the key skills they need to develop in order to succeed.
