League Football Education defines life skills as the competencies that enable people to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. LFE’s life skills strategy sets out to provide a programme of online delivery and face-to-face delivery, covering a range of identified subjects belonging to seven set aspects of well-being. Examples of the face-to-face programme can be found below:

To grow not only as a player but to grow as a person. To become a more complete human.
I know how social media can both positively and negatively affect my football.
I have learned how to cope with isolation.
Now I have a better view on suicide and how people may be experiencing things, but don’t show it.
I can now recognise and understand when racism is present, how it might make someone feel and how I can deal with it.
If I need to speak to someone, I know I can.
No matter the problem or situation you can always better yourself and try being the person you want to be in this world.
I know how to start a savings plan, look at what I spend my money on and how I can reduce invisible spending.
I will think about others’ opinions and beliefs, respect them and take them into consideration.
The balance of football and other interests is important to maintain focus and a healthy mind.
I now take sexual health more seriously and do not assume that I am always safe.
I know the different types of addiction and how the process begins.
