BOOST Life Skills understands the importance of a balanced set of soft & employability skills along with academic grades to give a student the best possible chance in life.  We excel at delivering training into schools, academies and colleges across the UK; our main objectives are:

  1. for the students to enjoy and be interactive with the learning
  2. to increase their awareness of their own skills and development areas, and to increase their confidence levels
  3. for the students to understand what’s expected of them in future years

All courses are prepared, school branded and delivered according to the year group and the learning outcomes required by yourself.  We can even provide you with a set of homework questions for the students to work on related to the delivery.

Deliveries can be to form time, a lesson, enrichment periods, drop downs, assemblies, work experience and careers weeks or summer school; all onsite or online.  BOOST Life Skills also co-hosts and delivers online during evenings to parents to help them understand how they can support students with the development of these skills.

Online is very scalable across multiple classes at the same time for the same single cost per lesson.  A PDF 1 page summary, learning log and school/academy branded certificate for the students are also available.  Onsite training delivery costs are more variable due to complexity and location and are available on discussion/application.

BOOST Life Skills are proud of our network of trainers that deliver interactive soft/employability skills training into schools, academies and colleges across the UK. The training is delivered by myself, built upon my 25 years of experience in multi-national businesses and recruitment up to Director level, or a skilled trainer with substantial educational training and work environment experience that really understands the importance of these essential skills.

Why pay more when you have so little budget?  We will not be beaten on cost or quality of delivery.

Make contact for a phone call or online meeting to see the highly professional materials and outputs; please be aware that our course list is also constantly updated with new deliveries as we design and roll them out to meet your needs.


BOOST Life Skills will better prepare our course attendees for the future by providing a series of personal growth and development training/tuition opportunities.  These courses and modules will include soft skills, life skills, approaches to assessment centres and interviews, mentoring and coaching.  BOOST Life Skills will focus on young adults at school or college and those already in the workplace who are seeking to fulfil their potential across:


We know from talking to Industry Placement Leaders, 6th Form Directors and Careers Leaders that there are often particular courses or segments of pupils, e.g pupil premium, who require more focus on confidence, attitude, self presentation etc , or any of the skills identified in our modules.  These skills make them more employable and better prepared for apprenticeships, the work place or further education.

We also know that today’s employers seek more than just academic qualifications with more importance being placed on life and soft skills.  I’ve worked at Director level in head office roles in a number of retail business for over 25 years, so really understand the requirements of a balanced set of soft and technical skills and what makes an individual employable to a recruiter or for an apprenticeship.

The courses and carousels are innovative, informative, interesting and made relevant to students of all ages; there’s lots of open debate, several pieces of group work, many short videos and the students each receive a high quality workbook that they use in the session and keep for future reference, having written their own action plan.  They also each receive a “BOOST my Skills – Record of Achievement and Learning Log” for each soft skill which can either be maintained by the student individually or stored on the school’s share-point site and built upon over time.  Great evidence to both parents and Ofsted.

Training can be for any segment or year group of students to support them for sixth form / apprenticeship / workplace / college / university interviews, the importance of focusing on and training in the soft skills is obvious.
