LifeSkills created with Barclays can help equip young people aged 11-19 with the key employability skills they need for work and connect them with work experience opportunities.
There are three core modules:
- Work Skills including interview skills, CV writing and information on choosing a career.
- People Skills including interpersonal skills, self-confidence, communication, self-awareness and personal presentation skills.
- Money Skills providing financial know-how which includes managing a budget, calculating percentages and understanding on how lending works.
The programme can be accessed directly by young people via the app and teachers can access non-branded lesson plans, workshops and resources for use in the classroom.
Once a student completes the LifeSkills modules either via the app, online or in the classroom, schools will be able to unlock the work experience matching portal. This will allow teachers to match pupils to local work experience opportunities.
I went to a careers fair today and there was a stall from Barclays the man showed me and my friends how the app works it's amazing! And really informative I would recommend downloading this app as it's really helpful and can give you lots of information 😃
Brilliant app - even better idea
Life skills is already pretty good, but an app to accompany is the icing on the cake!
Great app that's simple and easy to use.
