💡 Schools were designed to teach "hard skills," like reading, writing, and maths.
"Soft skills" include skills like emotional resilience, self-image, motivation, and relationship building.
Research shows that:
85% of job success comes from soft skills.
15% of job success comes from hard skills (technical skills).
Soft skills are often overlooked in most schools. There are lovely motivational slogans on the walls, but since it’s not on the exam, it’s not being taught.
This is where the Life Skills Academy comes in, to fill the gap and make a smoother transition fromm teen to adulthood while equipping them with tools and techniques for a successful and happy life.
Soft skills will multiply the hard skills of students, leading to clarity about themselves and their future, more efficiency, an increase in academic performance, stronger relationships, and improved emotional state.
