All our resources are designed to be delivered by educators and it is easy to search for lesson plans here. We also run conference calls to help you make the most of our resources. These will cover:

  • how best to use all of the LifeSkills resources
  • all of the LifeSkills content that young people and adults can access themselves
  • any other questions you have about the programme

To find out more about the programme or arrange a call please get in touch.

Thanks for getting in touch about requesting volunteers. Barclays employees support LifeSkills lessons run by professional facilitators from our charity partners at selected secondary schools and colleges across the UK according to their location and local measures of deprivation. You can check your institution’s eligibility here.

Work experience through LifeSkills is open to students aged 14-19 in full time education only. When a student has earned 250 points online or been taught LifeSkills in class, log in or register to access our work experience search. Once you find a placement and choose the dates you want, we’ll give you contact details for your chosen business. You’ll need to arrange the details with them before confirming the placement (and the student taking it) online. Over 19? For more information on apprenticeships, internships, graduate programmes or other ways to join Barclays please see the following link:

Firstly, we’re sorry you’re having problems. If this happens, please get in touch and send us the contact’s name, email address and postcode so we can chase this for you.


A selection of teacher resources is available to download or order from our resource page when you register or log in to LifeSkills. Printed copies should arrive within 10–15 working days of your request.

You can order up to 250 LifeSkills leaflets for your careers fair here and these will arrive within 10 – 15 working days. Unfortunately, we don’t organise careers fairs attendance through LifeSkills, but we suggest contacting your local Barclays branch to ask if anyone would be available to attend your event.

Students aged 14+ are able to register for their own LifeSkills account and access all of the online content for that age group. Adult learners can see the Working Life tab and there will an update due later this year that users can access directly with a focus on starting a business or working more flexibly.
