Skills for Life at Melland High School

The foundation for Skills for Life is based upon research carried out by UK Youth Employment which reviewed 13 skill-based frameworks and 86 reports regarding young people, skills and employment.

This research identified that the top five universal skills are:

  • Communication
  • Problem solving
  • Self-belief (Inc: motivation, resilience and positive attitude)
  • Self-management (Inc: initiative, organisation and accountability)
  • Teamwork

The Skills for Life icons will help to raise the profile of the skills and ensure that children and young people can see the multiple contexts where they are developing their skills.
