Financial skills are so important in life, but sadly they can’t be learned in school. MyPocketSkill is giving young people an invaluable opportunity to earn money, build their financial skills, and prepare for the world of work in the future.
We had 250 students attending and some very positive feedback from yourselves with regards to the students. Especially the questions that they asked and interest that they took.

It is a much more authentic experience for young people to actually work with entrepreneurs and those working in design... it gave them an insight into how you start your own business, also allowed them to think of skills they have now which are marketable.

This is such a compelling idea. Providing social and community good, whilst also helping the needs of time constrained parents is really exciting. Where this really takes shape is that engagement and buy in of young adults to leverage off their skills, education and learnings. Hugely supportive.

I am very happy my children are back at school and feel relieved we were able to have a few refresher lessons in English and Maths before they returned. It was good to have scheduled lessons to attend for a few weeks.
Now transitioning into school hours we plan to have some late afternoon sessions in the week and on Saturdays between any sports clubs and social activities. We are coordinating it with schedules of the young tutors. Being able to do the sessions via Zoom rather than in person gives us a lot of flexibility too.
MyPocketSkill has been really easy set up, the teens I have met have been enthusiastic and built a fantastic relationship with my child, she couldn’t be happier with the activities provided.
My experience with MyPocketSkill so far has been brilliant, the team were very quick to welcome me with a same day zoom call making me feel confident in everything. I now have two clients, both of which I teach ukulele twice a week. I am really truly enjoying seeing them progress! MyPocketSkill is giving me brilliant teaching experience - even if over zoom!
I have been giving virtual dance lessons for the past month. It has been a great experience for me to connect with children and share my passion for dance. MyPocketSkill has enabled me to keep a structure to my days and use my time productively. They have made it easy for me to set up my lessons.
