The Life Skills for Europe (LSE) Framework offers an overarching framework for life skills learning that is applicable across Europe. The framework aims to establish a common understanding of life skills by defining eight key types of capabilities necessary to be an active participant in life and work. For each capability there are two aspects, difficulty of skill/capability level and familiarity of context, which allow for a range of starting points and support the recognition of learners’ progression.
The diagram below shows how learners may be supported to develop their capability at different levels, from basic understanding at ‘foundation’ level through to increasingly complex learning at the ‘extending’ level and at the same time, develop these skills for different purposes and in different contexts – in relation to their own personal empowerment; in their relationships with others, including family, friends and their local community; and through wider engagement as an active citizen.
