Creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and learning, communication and collaboration, citizenship, life and career, along with personal and social responsibility are essential for success in the 21st century, both for healthy societies and for strong, creative and employable individuals.

Schools are uniquely placed to play a key role in promoting and sustaining young people’s emotional and social health as part of their role in providing a rounded quality education.

Our Life Skills workshops for pupils aged 10–17 are delivered in schools on a weekly basis for six consecutive weeks.

The workshops are:

  • active: emphasise learning by doing
  • interactive: use discussion and debate
  • relevant: focus on real-life issues facing young people and society
  • critical: encourage young people to think for themselves
  • collaborative: employ group work and co-operative learning
  • participative: give young people a say in their own learning.

The aim of the workshops is to help young people effectively manage the challenges and questions of our daily lives, improving confidence, assertiveness and decision-making, as well as the ability to stay safe and healthy so that they can develop into successful and employable adults.
