1) What are the ‘life skills’?
These are skills essential for life, depending on such factors as age and life situation. Little children need skills different from the young people aged between 14-29 years. Life skills help people to build their adult lives, find a job or start a business, as well as to be able to feel oneself the part of society. For instance, the ability to make decisions, interact with other people, negotiate and build a budget. These skills are helpful in getting a job or in participation in community affairs.
These skills help people to be efficient and productive in an everyday life, adapting to its requirements and changes.
