Life skills are associated with managing and living a better quality of life. They help us to accomplish our ambitions and live to our full potential.
Life skills seek to build the capacity of individuals to make decisions and take actions that positively impact their lives and the lives of those around them. A primary goal is to promote psychological as well as physical well-being.
In a constantly changing environment, having life skills is an essential part of being able to meet the challenges of everyday life. To cope with the increasing pace and change of modern life, students need new life skills such as the ability to deal with stress and frustration.
Education should prepare students for the future, whether that involves going on to further study, joining the world of work or becoming an engaged member of society. students who are able to understand and use these skills, along with their educational qualifications, will be better placed to take advantage of educational and employment opportunities.
There is often a mismatch between what students acquire in the classroom and the demands placed on them outside the classroom. Our life skills training programs aim at bridging this gap. We work in partnership with schools, colleges and children and young people organisations and care homes.
Each program is designed taking into account the individual needs of the participants, helping each institution achieve their mission and goals.
All of our life skills training programs are facilitated using a creative therapeutic approach.
