About

endorseMe® gives young people the opportunity to be endorsed for their employability skills by their mentors, employers, teachers and others working in the community – and create a record of their skills, achievements and experiences.

endorseMe® is based on the New Zealand Employability Skills Framework – a set of skills or capabilities which New Zealand employers have identified as most essential.

These skills include:

      • Positive attitude
      • Communication
      • Team work
      • Self-management
      • Willingness to learn
      • Thinking skills
      • Resilience

Definition: work readiness;

“making sure our young people have the right skills, attitudes and preparation to help them find and keep a job.”
