Date Posted: Tuesday 23 March 2021

We are thrilled to announce that Ashford School has become an 8billionideas Partner School.

8billionideas is an innovative learning service for 10- to 14-year-olds that teaches children extra-curricular skills categorised into three main themes.

8billionideas are a passionate team of educators creating an educational and experience platform with a mission to give every student on the planet the skills and belief to change the world.

8billionideas teach extra-curricular skills through experiences that are delivered by real people. They provide mentoring with expert facilitators from across the globe, as well as engaging videos and courses.

Dr Kirsten Dickers, Ashford School’s Higher Education, Careers and Research Leader, commented on the partnership saying, “Preparing students to succeed in their future careers is an important aspect of the education we provide at Ashford School: we ensure that our pupils gain career-related skills and knowledge through their academic studies, PSHE and the co-curricular programme, as well as in dedicated careers support sessions. We believe that the partnership with 8billionideas will give pupils extra opportunities to gain the skills to be successful in the future.”

8billionideas teaches three core themes and their education is underpinned by the world-renowned High-Performance Learning organisation:

  • Starting a Business – A focus on building an entrepreneurial skillset
  • Building a Career Passport – Inspiring your child to explore new careers and passions
  • Levelling Up – Learning new skills and preparing your child for the world of work

We encourage families to take advantage of this opportunity and use your free trial to explore the new 8billionideas platform. There are a lot of exciting career experiences and courses that your children can use to build their skills and learn more about themselves. This can then feed into the careers work that is done in School and help set them up for future success.
