OVERVIEW

This project focused on helping teachers to build confidence in their own technical and professional networking skills, showing teachers how to use and become proficient with LinkedIn and how to transfer those skills to students.

Use the interactive final report to learn how staff were supported to develop their skills and to use them with 60 students to create over 3000 new Linkedin connections, 10 work experience placements, 7 new guest employer lectures and 2 job offers.
