Does your institution go above and beyond to prepare young people for the world of work using LifeSkills? Then we want to hear from you!

We know that so many of you are already doing fantastic work supporting young people on their route to a career. That’s why we have launched the LifeSkills Award, to recognise institutions which use the programme to promote employability teaching and go above and beyond to prepare their young people for the world of work.

The LifeSkills Award also supports the development of a school-wide career strategy. The process of applying for the LifeSkills Award can help you reflect on and evaluate the careers programme your school has in place. Additionally, achieving the award demonstrates your commitment to a whole school approach.
