Life Skills Education

What are ‘Life Skills’?

 

Life Skills have been defined by the World Health Organisation as ‘abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enables individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.’

 

Expected learning outcomes include a combination of values, attitudes and skills with a particular emphasis on those skills that relate to critical thinking, problem solving, self-management, communication and inter-personal skills.

 

Practicing ‘Life Skills’ leads to qualities such as self esteem, sociability and the ability to take action and generate change as well as the capability to have the freedom to decide what to do and who to be.

 

ANI offers a wide range of training in many valuable ‘Life Skills’ areas. Courses are held regularly throughout the region and are conducted by appropriately qualified educators and/or counsellors.

 

Subject areas include:
 

  • Anger Management
  • Financial Management
  • Marriage
  • Mental Health
  • Parenting
  • Personal Development
