About the EtonX Future Skills courses

EtonX’s Future Skills Programme is a suite of online courses, each of which provides 7-10 hours of self-study content. Each course is presented by a different Eton teacher and the skills learned are designed to be beneficial for all students, whether preparing for sixth form, for higher education or for the workplace. Current courses include Resilience, Interview Skills and Making an Impact.  

Courses are open to all UK state schools for Years 10 – 13.

This programme builds on the offer made to UK schools at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in March where over 900 schools signed up for access for over 220,000 students.

Teachers’ testimonials

Our students who have access to the courses have found them to be extremely beneficial and were very grateful to be given the opportunity to work though such a unique platform. As a school, our free access has meant we have been able to support our students much more effectively with progression and work experience skills.

Dr Nikky Hammond, Acting Assistant Principal and Head of Physics at Tomlinscote School in Surrey

The courses supported our students by enabling them to learn independently whilst enhancing their writing and research skills. We noticed a difference in our Year Eleven’s writing skills and the ability of our Year Thirteens to conduct research, especially in subjects such as sociology, psychology and history.
