What is the Commercial Training Programme?

Our Commercial Training Programme plugs the careers knowledge gap by teaching young people about the commercial world and the career opportunities within it, in a fun engaging way.

The programme is hosted on our custom-built gamified learning app My Future Hub (available on the App Store and Google Play Store) which delivers 100 + engaging micro-learning modules, co-created with top industry experts in each field (our corporate partners).

Our close connection to the early careers industry means My Future Hub will eventually be one of the most up to date career advisory platforms for the commercial sector in the United Kingdom. Our platform will always be growing as industries evolve and new career paths emerge.

Hosted on our custom-built app – My Future Hub (available on the Google Play and App Store)

We have built our My Future Hub app in collaboration with an award-winning developer. Our app’s design is informed by numerous research-backed theories in learning psychology and neuroscience, which have been shown to maximise learner engagement and information retention. These include social learning, Bloom’s taxonomy of learning and gamification principles.

Micro-learning Modules: all modules are presented in a digestible micro-learning format. After completing introductory level modules, young people will unlock further levels which cover in-depth industry knowledge.

Leaderboards and Social Interaction: young people in the same school can post on the community noticeboard and view their overall position on the anonymised national leaderboard. This competitive social element has been shown to increase learner engagement exponentially. All posts are monitored and regulated for appropriateness and safeguarding.

Gamification: modules are embedded into one of ten different engaging game templates.

Battle Feature: battles can be waged against classmates, to see who can complete the module assessment first with the most correct answers.

Experience Points (XP): all achievement on the app reward XP which determine leaderboard position.

Login Streaks: our Login Streaks feature motivates young people to learn a little bit every day.

Real Life Rewards: the top three young people on the leaderboard each month will be able to trade their XP in for a gift voucher of their choice.

Earn Badges: cool surprise badges are unlocked as young people complete challenges and levels.

My Future Hub requires a registration link to create an account.

Use is limited to our young people and Corporate Partners.
