How we help - Life skills training

Wyre Forest and South Worcestershire Nightstop and Mediation Service runs accredited life skills training to offer a comprehensive service to our young people.

Why do we offer life skills training?

This forms part of our homelessness prevention work. For a variety of reasons some young people have not had the opportunity to build life skills that will equip them in later life. We can provide valuable life skills training to vulnerable young people to help them make their own way more successfully and become more attractive to prospective employers.

We are an accredited Open College Network West Midlands location. Open College Network West Midlands centre number 61083.

What can you expect to gain from this?

We offer short courses in:

  • Sustaining a tenancy
  • Using Cooking Skills in the Domestic Kitchen
  • Personal Budgeting & Managing Money
  • The Role of Young People as Peer Mentors
  • Career Preparation

Learners build up a portfolio of work and are assessed in each unit.
