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.
Skills that students learn now will be valuable to their future, helping them to adapt to the education and employment landscape as it changes. Explore the most relevant content for your current teaching environment that can be easily adapted for virtual facilitation.
We also have interactive tools, films and articles to suit independent study for students aged 14+.
