Soft Skills Course for Teenagers

Have you ever stopped to consider how important it is for your teenager to develop the right attitude and soft skills needed to help them secure a better future?

Soft skills are vital for a teenager’s best chance of securing a successful future in these times.  We all know how importance solid soft skills are in making or breaking a career and building a secure social support network to help us through the ups and downs of general life.

It’s not just soft skills in the workplace that count on the career ladder or in being socially successful.  With such high competition in securing university places, internships and work experience, it’s no longer enough to be securing top grades alone. In fact, it’s now accepted that a student with top grades but poor soft skills will not achieve a career or salary as great as an average-grade student with outstanding soft skills.

Presenting oneself as likeable, being able to relate and listen to other people, finding creative ways forward in conflict resolution and the ability to prioritise and balance life elements… all of these aspects count in opening doors and excelling in life – and it counts in the teenage years when your child is learning about social dynamics and creating their base network of people and possibilities.

In this one day course we will teach and reinforce essential soft skills – firmly based on NLP and Coaching techniques – many of which they won’t learn at school/college or Uni. Many of which will simultaneously enhance both their social, school learning and future career prospects.  Some of the skills we address are those such as:
