Our Skills for Life programmes for schools

Programmes

We produce programmes for schools that teach children skills for life: how to cope with everyday difficulties, how to communicate with and get on with other people, and build self-awareness and emotional resilience. Our programmes are suitable for all children, and are evidence-based. They are widely used both in the UK and in over 30 countries around the world.

The programmes are based around stories, and the resources contain full lesson plans, posters, activity sheets and children’s items required to deliver the sessions. The modules cover:

  • Feelings
  • Communication
  • Friendship
  • Conflict
  • Change and loss
  • Moving forward
