Life skills for sixth form and beyond

These skills are valuable in students’ personal lives as they make connections and forge new relationships. They are also important to employers, which gives students a competitive advantage as they embark on their careers.

Schools can choose to run these as stand-alone sessions or as part of induction days and leadership programmes.

The interactive nature of these workshops means they are best suited to groups of up to 30 students.

What is the training format?

Workshops include a blend of lecture, discussion, role-plays and practical exercises.

Students receive certificates of attendance to support their university applications and employment interviews. “Memory Joggers”  are also available to load on their mobile devices, enabling them to review key learning points (see example below).
