Major oil and petroleum company and leading graduate recruiter, BP, has recently launched its newest initiative: The Skills Refinery, a worldwide digital platform aimed at improving the employability of students. Soon a "global challenge" will reach the portal as well, where the winning student team will receive a fully-sponsored trip to the 2019 One Young World Summit in London.
The Skills Refinery provides students with the opportunity to test and develop their abilities in five skills areas – critical problem solving, innovation, influence and communication, cognitive flexibility and emotional intelligence. The platform has been developed using the latest digital technologies, to create an online gamified portal, where students will find resources to help them enhance these essential professional skills, while also having fun.
The Skills Refinery will allow students to test themselves, progress their skills by using interactive quizzes, track their own progress and discover what the five skills mean in practice in the professional world.
To add to the sense of competition and excitement, an annual global challenge will be set for members of the Skills Refinery. Launching in December, students will be asked to form teams to compete via video submission at a national level. The national winners will go on to challenge each other at a global level, for the chance to win an exclusive, all expenses paid trip to the One Young World Summit next year, for its 10th anniversary in London.
