With education institutions closed across the UK, we wanted to let you know that LifeSkills is here to help, starting with our dedicated support hubs for educators, parents and young people.
- If you are looking for activities for young people to complete at home, our student hub has many interactive tools, films and activities to encourage independent study.
- Our parent support hub is also full of information; by reading our parent blogs and a new advice page specific to current circumstances, they too will be able to support their children with LifeSkills resources.
- Access a range of lesson plans, toolkits and quick-fire activities activities for use with children who still need to attend school, as well as resources suitable for virtual delivery, through our educator hub.
We’ve included a selection of content below that could be useful, whether you are busy planning or still going into work throughout the Easter holidays. To explore over 100 hours of free resources log in here
Student wellbeing might need greater attention in the upcoming months. Work through the ice breaker activities together in a virtual learning environment; set the case studies as independent reading; or use the whole toolkit with students still in school and college to ensure wellbeing remains a priority for young people.
