How LifeSkills can support you and your students right now
The Covid-19 (‘coronavirus’) situation is understandably creating a lot of uncertainty and affecting the teaching community in new and unforeseen ways. We have created this page to support learners, parents and educators during this challenging time.
Why not explore our range of short independent worksheet activities, which have been adapted for remote learning. In addition, we have developed a series of online lessons, led by facilitators. Many of our other lessons can also be easily adapted for virtual learning.
