Life Skills Education
“Life Skills Education is designed to facilitate the practice and reinforcement of psychological skills in a culturally and developmentally appropriate way: it contributes to the promotion of personal and social development, the prevention of health and social problems, and protection of Human Rights” – WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION.
At J.M.P.S our constant endeavor is to reduce the gap between knowledge and practice. In school, Life Skills-Based Education (LSBE) has been adopted as a means to empower young people in challenging situations. Our carefully designed learning policy has inherent transformative potential. It helps young people develop critical thinking, acquire problem-solving skills that builds their sense of personal worth and also teaches them to interact with others constructively and effectively.
Objectives of LSBE Teaching Programme
- To help students apply Life Skills in various spheres of their lives
- To empower youth with the know-how of knowledge application. After all, knowledge is power when used.
One of the chief reasons for the inclusion of the LSBE teaching program in our school education is the growing discrepancy between education and actual development of the child.
We believe teaching needs to have a life-altering approach. It should not just propagate information but learning that can be applied in everyday life.
Life Skills Education ensures a holistic approach to teaching and learning. By focusing on a methodology that is balanced in terms of academics, learning and teaching practices, there are more possibilities for fostering a culture of inclusive development in the institute.
