EtonX’s Future Skills online courses are designed to ensure that young people thrive in today’s fast-changing world by bridging the gap between academic success and life in the real world. They help students to develop vital skills such as communication, critical thinking and creative problem solving to prepare them for the future, both at university and in the workplace.

The Future Skills courses are suitable for ages 14-20. They are all online and delivered in English. A custom-built virtual classroom enables students to learn and practise soft skills in a secure environment where they can easily engage and collaborate with tutors and other learners. 

Students’ skills are assessed upon entry and completion of the course using situational judgements tests to measure progress and impact.

All courses are available in two learning paths: Tutor Group course and Self Study course.

7 Week Tutor Group

Tutor Group courses take place over 7 weeks, with paced weekly learning with a tutor group of up to 7 other students and an EtonX tutor. Students gain access to 7–10 hours of highly engaging and interactive learning materials, in addition to an online group class every week where they engage in guided discussions, role-play and collaborative tasks. Upon completion students will receive a verifiable and graded certificate.

Self Study

Self Study courses are completed independently, enabling students to start at any time and work at their own pace. Students gain access to 7–10 hours of highly engaging and interactive learning materials. Upon completion students will receive a certificate of completion.
