"LifeSkills is the leading example of how businesses can engage with educators to support young people. All UK organisations require skilled young people who are also creative, adept at solving challenges, effective communicators and confident. The LifeSkills programme equips young people and those that support them with the tools and information they need to succeed in our economy today and in the future."
