Developing characteristics, values and habits that last a lifetime!

How Do You Develop The Essential Skills For Learning And Life?

Learning & Life Skills is a research-based approach designed for schools to ensure that every pupil develops the essential skills for learning and life. It intentionally and systematically develops pupils’ personal learning and life skills (PSHE) alongside subject learning and thus also supports ‘readiness’ for the next stage in their education.

Learning & Life Skills promote pupils’ ability to learn independently, which results in increased motivation, raised standards and accelerated progress.

What Is It?

The Learning & Life Skills Learning Units and training for teachers provide the structure and support required for successful implementation and the consequential high impact on learning and teaching.

The Learning & Life Skills Framework contains a progressive bank of ‘I Can’ statements from Early Years Foundation Stage to the end of Key Stage 2.
