Singapore Skills for Life Programmes
Our non-residential education programmes will be run in collaboration with partners in Singapore. They will be for students aged 6-8 and 9-12 and will be conducted over 5 days or as part of after school programmes. Students will have the chance to participate in our programmes developing their skills for life through entrepreneurship. Skills for life refer to a students ability to work as part of a team, be an effective leader, communicate authentically and be able to adapt to challenging situations. All the programmes are very interactive and practical, with students covering a range of activities and real world scenarios including business specific tasks as well as problems that directly affect them.
“It’s not always people who start out the smartest who end up the smartest.”

Our teachers come from a range of backgrounds and experiences. Most are former teachers from the UK looking for a new challenge and some come from business, but all have a common desire to teach students the value of skills for life through entrepreneurship. In the UK soft skill (skills for life) development has now made it into the curriculum and so we bring this knowledge and expertise to our programmes too. We are also able to provide bi-lingual English and Mandarin teachers if required.
Parent & Child Programme
After your child has been on the programme with us in Singapore, we will provide you with ‘homework’ that you can do with your child to further the learning at home. Our teachers have prepared a unique parent / child programme that can be done in your own time, with a range of practical activities and tasks as a continuation of learning from the programme. It’s not compulsory, but we hope you enjoy it.
Please take the time to read some of the articles in our Read Me section of the website, highlighting the importance of why we should be teaching young people these skills for life. In particular, this short article from the World Economic Forum on the skills needed by students for the fourth industrial revolution as soon as 2020.
