Yesterday saw the launch of the Tesco Youth Academy in Slovakia, part of our commitment to help young people gain the skills and experience they need to start successful careers. 

The Youth Academy website, which is intended for young people aged between 14-18 as well as their teachers, is free to use and is designed to teach key transferrable skills that will be valuable in all career paths, such as teamwork, confidence, personal effectiveness, resilience, creative thinking and problem solving.

These skills are taught through interactive online exercises which give users the chance to test what they have learnt, encouraging them to apply these skills in their own lives. The website also includes free workshop materials which can be downloaded by teachers and others working with young people.

"The project should help to develop so-called soft skills which are increasingly necessary in the labour market. As an international company operating in over 12 markets, we want to share our experience of helping young people to develop."
