KPMG in the Crown Dependencies is proud to launch BecomingX Education in every school in Guernsey - equipping young islanders with the ambition, skills and self-confidence to succeed in life.

Fronted and co-founded by TV survivalist and best-selling author Bear Grylls, BecomingX provides a library of over 200 lessons, discussions and other content for Years 4-13, that aims to enhance young people’s personal and professional development.

The platform features inspiring and relatable insights from the world’s most successful and iconic people – including names like Roger Federer, Ursula Burns, Mark Ormrod, Frances Arnold, and more.

Empowering local teachers and students

While the aim of BecomingX is to directly inspire young people, this cannot be achieved without the influence and devotion of our island’s teachers.

Through this sponsorship, BecomingX will provide licences for 14 primary schools, 6 secondary schools and 3 private schools in Guernsey – covering the entire academic year ending in 2024.

This will give every educator in Guernsey access to BecomingX Education as a valuable resource to support their teaching and skills development programmes.

Focusing on personal development

In addition to lessons from some of the world’s most successful and inspiring people, students can also learn more about valuable personal and professional skills such as:

  • Thinking creatively
  • Good decision-making
  • Problem-solving under pressure
  • Listening skills
  • Presenting confidently
  • Communicating effectively

Each of these lessons is presented by Bear Grylls, and are ranked according to their level of challenge for students.

Every subject includes an array of lesson plans, activity handouts, and other resources that teachers can use to enhance the overall learning experience.
