SELF is a life skills program that aims to develop the skills young people need for a healthy and authentic sense of self awareness in order to make informed decisions about their life and their personal wellbeing. The course is not linked to any specific further study or qualification but benefits students in developing self-awareness, a sense of direction, motivation, greater resilience and fulfilling relationships. These skills are vital to young people in their senior years as they face competing demands on their time, the influence of social media and the important decisions they are faced with during this time and throughout their adult life. The 21st century workforce is seeking more than technical skills of their employees. Much has been written about the soft skills that are important to the workplace such as communication, teamwork, motivation, enthusiasm, problem solving, adaptability and emotional intelligence.
