Our Story

The Future Skills Company is the work of a journalist, creative content creator and educator, whose heart has always been in teaching and training.

Style of teaching has evolved in our schools, yet few are making learning a foundational experience. The ideas where students are encouraged to inquire, explore and express are not induced in the system.

A project which could empower the Gen-Next with skills to follow their hearts and excel in life was born.

Our methods were validated by working with schools and educators. The framework that developed became the base for The Future Skills Company.
