Dublin Youthreach Centres deploy Skillys market leading learning platform to measure and track students soft skill development.


Skilly is pleased to announce our collaboration with South Dublin Youthreach Centres to deploy our market-leading soft skill practice programme to support their young people's social and personal development.

Commenting on the programme Ken Smart, AEO, said

“We are very excited to implement this programme with Skilly, who have developed a highly innovative learning platform to engage our young people and support their personal development through self-reflective skill practices that can be measured and tracked.

We will bring over 350+ students through Skilly programmes across all our centres this year. The pandemic left a significant learning gap in social and personal development, and we see the growing need to invest in the latest technologies to help us bridge this gap.”

The solution is simple and engaging and focuses on tracking the practice of skills and promoting the learner to own and develop their social and personal skills, including SPHE, Communications and Mental Health.

Commenting on the announcement, Shane Maguire, CEO of Skilly, said

“Skilly's technology brings the rigour and accountability to skill practice that you see in everyday sport to the development of social and personal skill development. Our solution is an innovative approach to closing the learning gap and will supplement the amazing work undertaken by Youthreach Centres across DDLETB. ”

Skilly, based in Nova UCD, is a leading Irish-based learning software company that enables students and employees to develop skills through regular practice and self-reflection that can be measured and tracked.
