Help Students move from Education to Work | LifeSkills

Research shows businesses aren’t doing enough to give young people the skills they need to succeed. LifeSkills helps connect students and businesses through valuable work experience. Head of LifeSkills Kirstie Mackey explains more.

Young people are told to go out and get work but, all too often, with limited knowledge of the skills businesses need. That’s where LifeSkills comes in.

To date, LifeSkills has helped over 1.4 million young people online and in class. But we still need educators, policy makers and, of course, businesses to do more.

If more businesses committed to simple changes, like offering work experience or traineeships, young people could improve their CVs and boost their employability.

We all have a part to play in helping young people achieve their potential. Find out more about connecting your students with local businesses through LifeSkills work experience.
