We believe in the value of human interaction and the transfer of knowledge. Our vision is to improve and inspire the lives of our community of learners and instructors.
- We are creating an online community of high quality instructors and lifelong learners.
- We empower instructors to build a teaching business that is flexible and convenient.
- We increase accessibility and affordability to learners by reducing the geographic and economic barriers to skilled instructors.
At The Skills, our values are not static. As a platform, we will strive to meet the needs of our learners, our instructors, and the world around us. Knowledge is power and we aim to connect our instructors with their learners in an authentic and convenient way.
Whilst constantly evolving, some of our core values are:
Education - Knowledge is power. As an online learning platform, our primary goal is to help transfer knowledge and insights from our instructors to our learners and across the community as a whole.
Democratization - Our instructors are some of the most talented individuals in their respective fields. Unfortunately, many learners never have a chance to access them for a variety of reasons. Our goal is to bridge that divide. Anyone, anywhere in the world with access to the internet or a phone can now sit down and learn from the best. We know democratization strives to give access to everybody and we are working on partnerships to help provide access to underserved and underprivileged communities.
Inspiration - Every dream starts somewhere. To become your best self requires hard work and dedication, but the journey and motivation can be found anywhere. Our hope is that our learners will be inspired and educated by our instructors. And with that seed of inspiration, can grow greatness.
Diversity - As an educational platform, diversity is critical. Diversity in our instructors. Diversity in our learners. Diversity of lessons being taught. We will continue to foster diversity as a key tenet of our platform.
Community - Community plays a critical role in education. There are three significant communities within our platform: Instructors, Learners, and The Skills. As a platform, we believe the intersection of these communities plays a significant role in amplifying the voice of, and value to, all members.
We hope you enjoy The Skills. Keep Learning.
