LifeSkills Champions Terms and Conditions

 The LifeSkills Champions programme is an extension of LifeSkills and provides young people aged 14-19 with further opportunities for employability skills training and access to a reward in the form of a digital badge which they can access upon completion of activities set as part of the programme.  Young people are invited to be part of the programme through their educator.

The LifeSkills Champions badge will be accessed through our partners, Credly. Credly will hold information on all the activities the Champion has completed and the employability skills they have built as a result.  Young people can push this badge to social media platforms, including LinkedIn, and it can be included on their CV to showcase their skills to potential employers.

These terms and conditions, along with the wider site terms and policies, govern your use of the LifeSkills Champions programme. By accessing this site, you agree to be bound by them. We reserve the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without notice by updating this posting, and your continued access to or use of this site will constitute your acceptance of any such changes.
