Life skills are not something new; they are a set of basic skills that enable us to effectively manage the challenges of daily life. They include critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, the ability to communicate and collaborate, along with personal and social responsibility.

Schools and vocational education and training (VET) institutions 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 and helping students develop into successful adults.

We are therefore delighted to announce the launch of our Life Skills programme for schools and VET institutions in Greece, following approval from the Hellenic Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs and with the support of HSBC.
