Study Programmes

At LifeSkills we work with young people to give them a better future. Study Programmes tailored to the individual allow them to work at their own pace, receiving support and guidance every step of the way. It isn't about giving them an easy ride. It's giving them the chance to gain real qualifications and experience, so they have the skills and the confidence to go out into the workplace.

And it works. Over 79% of young people on our courses went into a job or an Apprenticeship. LifeSkills has been recognised as one of the the UK's leading learning providers

Our courses include Child Care, Construction, Customer Service, Motor Vehicle, Sports, Nail & Beauty, Music and. But we don't only provide skills in specific areas. Individuals also improve functional skills in Maths, English and ICT, get practical help with CVs and interview technique, and engage in activities promoting personal and social development.

One of the most important areas of these courses is the opportunity to gain work experience. Tesco's, Suffolk Libraries, Poundstretchers and John Lewis are just a handful of the companies who currently engage with the Study Programme. They recognise that as well as providing a great learning experience for young people, they can learn a lot from it too.

“Having a trainee working in the salon has been a great experience. An extra pair of hands is always useful but it's been a great way for me to review the way I do things too. When you're explaining procedures to someone else, you look at things in a fresh light.”
