Through the Skills section you can choose to improve on an existing skill or try something new. It's all about giving something a go, learning something and getting better at it, giving yourself a sense of achievement and well-being as a result. Colleges, universities and employers like to see that you are more than your academic record—they want to see that you are a well-rounded individual with life skills too!
Here’s a list of ideas that you could do for your Skills section, or use as a starting point to create a programme of your own.
Below is a list of some common skills chosen and the links include some guidance on how you could complete the section.
(Please keep checking back as more will be added over the coming months)
Please Note: These programmes are for guidance and are not to be taken as a rigid syllabus. To indicate the content appropriate to young people with varying degrees of knowledge and experience, they are arranged under three headings: ‘For beginners’, ‘For those with some knowledge’ and ‘For the more advanced’, and participants are free to select as broad or as restricted an aspect of this skill as they wish, but appropriate social and cultural aspects are to be covered.
