Promoting 21st Century Learning globally

The mission of the Skills Foundation is to educate, inspire and empower students to reach their full potential. We do this by giving teachers, parents and students access to leading edge technology, stimulating and progressive education content and globally recognised certification programmes.


We believe that every student should have the education and skills to thrive in the 21st Century. We work with leading companies, institutes and educationalists around the world to make this happen.


In our advisory capacity, we also work with Governments and Ministries to develop innovative education programmes – thereby creating jobs, stimulating foreign direct investment and driving economic growth.
