Life Skills Training


The term ‘Life Skills’ refers to the skills you need to make the most out of life. Life skills are usually associated with managing and living a better quality of life. They help us to accomplish our ambitions and live to our full potential. There is no definitive list of life skills. Certain skills may be more or less relevant to you depending on your life circumstances, your culture, beliefs, age, geographic location, etc.
Different life skills will be more or less relevant at different times your life, for example:
When at school or university, you'll need study skills
When buying a house, communication skills and negotiation skills may be needed
You'll need to work on your employability skills to get a job
When you have a job, leadership and presentation skills may be useful, along with a whole host of other skills.
When you start a family, time management skills and organisational skills are likely to become important.
There will be times throughout your life when you'll need conflict resolution, stress-management and problem solving skills too.
