An online services market has launched "adult" classes to help equip young people with skills essential to life and the workplace.
The professional coach will be required to transmit skills such as changing a tire, repairing clothes and managing personal finances, earning up to £ 100 per class.
Classes have arrived after data from the UK's Secretary for International Development revealed that 387 million children will leave school without basic skills for the next decade.
The online service company Bark is looking for coaches & # 39; adult & # 39; to help millennials master basic skills, such as applying for a passport or completing a tax return.
Bark.com partnered with its tutors, accountants, mortgage brokers and mechanics to launch the service later this month, after an increase in requests for advice on money management, banking, job interviews, home economics, pensions and taxes.
Professionals working in these sectors can register as a Bark service provider to teach "adult" classes in their profession and pass on these essential skills. Tutors can expect to earn around £ 100 per class but, as with all Bark.com service providers, they can set their own rates.
The classes, which will be available throughout the United Kingdom, were announced after the site's internal data revealed a 15% increase in requests for basic jobs, such as repairing clothes, changing tires, cleaning and basic repairs in the home.
The "adult" classes have been designed to address knowledge gaps that have grown steadily from Generation X (mid-1960s-1980s) to Generation Z (mid-1990s to mid-2000s).
Other skills include changing a tire and repairing and repairing clothes that are not taught in schools, and that is what Generation Z struggles with.
Classes start at £ 50 per day and will cover a range of skills, including: changing a tire, applying for a passport, professional communication, filing a tax return and mortgage types and saving for a deposit
Kai Feller, co-founder of Bark.com, commented: "We noticed an increase in requests from professionals who can offer cooking classes, solve basic mechanical problems and provide professional advice, among many other basic life skills that simply are not available in the schools .
"Young people are coming out of higher education with gaps in their knowledge and are effectively thrown into the abyss when it comes to 'adult' responsibilities, like creating a budget or filing a tax return.
"We want to fill these gaps and ensure that young people have the opportunity to learn the skills they need to be self-sufficient and successful adults from the moment they leave their homes."
