What is LifeSkills?

A free employability and financial education programme, to support people to develop the skills, confidence and connections they need to get into or progress in work. 

LifeSkills is designed for all ages from young people aged 7+ to adults and families.  We provide downloadable resources, interactive tools and films for educators, front-line workers, families and charities to use with their learners.  Young people aged 14+, families and adults can learn directly through the website too.

At the heart of LifeSkills we fund charity partners to support the UK’s most disadvantaged communities, providing tailored interventions to young people, adults and families. Our goal is to tackle the barriers preventing these groups from entering and sustaining employment across various industries.

LifeSkills since it was set up in 2013, has supported millions of participants and placed thousands into work through collaboration with the education sector, respected charities, and the business community.
