About 'Skills Miner' Minecraft Game - An Enginuity Product
Enginuity (formerly Semta) and the Prince’s Trust have created an online game – powered by artificial intelligence – to identify people who have what it takes to power the nation’s economic recovery when the lockdown is lifted.
Skills Miner is part of Enginuity’s mission to create skills solutions for individuals, educators and employers to help close the skills gap in the engineering sector.
Sophisticated Artificial Intelligence algorithms monitor players’ performance and assess their aptitude for a whole raft of skills – from Observation and Assessment, Resilience, Digital Competency, Problem Solving and Critical Reasoning.
Players of the game, which is based on Minecraft and aimed at players of all ages, will be guided to various levels, given assessments of their cerebral and dexterity strengths – then given a call to action to help them make an appropriate move through the gateway from the virtual to the real world. It will help boost neurodiversity and reveal a myriad of vocational pathways to work in the real world.
What are the benefits of playing #SkillsMiner?
Play today and discover the limitless career pathways that engineering could open for learners.
TWO PROGRAMMES, ONE BOOK, LOTS OF FUN!
Brought to you by West Lothian Youth Foundation (WLYF), the Score with Maths and Smiley Miler At Home resource pack combines two popular schools programmes to help keep children engaged whilst at home.
WLYF understand that this is a difficult time for everybody as we live in these unusual circumstances; these activities and resources have been created with the aim of helping the West Lothian community.
Aimed at primary pupils, young people can learn a bit about health, exercise and maths but most importantly we hope they find the book fun!
We also encourage adults to get involved as much as possible and make it a family affair.
We would love for you to send pictures, videos and feedback of you getting involved. Remember to tag @WLYF4football @DYWWestLothian

Between Monday 1st June and Friday 5th June 2020, the Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Regional Groups ran an awareness campaign throughout Scotland, to make young people more aware of job roles within key sectors, as well as the skills and qualities required to succeed in these roles.
In West Lothian - and across Scotland - we were fortunate to be able to tap in to the energy of key workers to support the campaign and to inspire the next generation.
We would like to thank all the #DYWKeyWorkers who took time to share their story!
Check out our #DYWKeyWorkers case studies below!
Videos are also available on our YouTube channel - DYW West Lothian.
June 1st 2020 heralded the start of the #DYWKeyWorkers social media campaign in Scotland.
Primary school pupils were encouraged to take part by thinking about the job roles that have been invaluable in protecting and serving our communities during this challenging time and then either designing their own key worker image or writing a poem.
We are delighted that pupils in West Lothian were inspired to get involved and created the amazing drawings and thoughtful poems featured in our highlights video below.
A huge well done to all the pupils who took part!
