LifeSkills for Educators
We know that challenging young people to plan ahead isn’t always easy. But we also know that a well-prepared young person is more likely to make the most of their future opportunities.
That’s why we created free, curriculum-led resources to help you inspire your students to build the vital skills they’ll need.
LifeSkills online is home to over 50 hours of free teaching resources, with 70% of secondary schools and 74% of further education colleges already taking part.*
