Life Skills: preparing young people beyond academic success


Here at EristarsUK in partnership with Ubuntu Pledge, we have one single-minded ambition – to inspire young people and their families to get the skills they need for a better future. And that’s what we do. Not just online, but in class and through valuable real-world experiences.

Academic success on its own is not enough. If we want to prepare well-rounded, happy, resilient young people, they need a rich and broad curriculum and range of experiences.

LifeSkills works with teachers, parents and the community to help young people and their families:

  • Build job-hunting skills - Find out how social media can supercharge a CV, get tips for creating strong covering letters and LinkedIn profiles, and practice interview techniques.
  • Learn financial management skills - By working through core lifeSkills, they’ll unlock and develop valuable personal skills – including time management.
  • Identify digital skills - Interactive challenges help identify and develop personal skills – with useful advice on the effective use of the Internet, social media and email.
