Life Skills Programme

Life Skills is a planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences that help young people grow and develop as individuals and as members of families and communities.  It equips them with knowledge and practical skills to live healthy, safe, fulfilled and responsible lives.

Life Skills also enables young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.

A number of subjects fall under the umbrella of Life Skills; PSHE education, Careers Education Guidance and Work Related Learning.
