The life skills model encourages you to develop a broader repertoire of behaviour so that you can choose appropriate and self-fulfilling responses to a variety of situations. This certificate is responsive to individual needs and interests in order to enhance interpersonal and group leadership skills. Life skills coach training is conducted according to current learning principles and has increasingly been recognized as an important addition to the field of adult education.

What is a Life Skills Coach ?

A Life Skills Coach is a trained para-professional who is able to facilitate groups, model and evaluate skills and support individualized learning. Coaches work from their hearts, demonstrating with their lives, their growth, and through their range of emotion and depth of experience, the effective use of the skills that they offer to their participants. Coaches put themselves on the line, human to human (Allen, Mehal, Palmateer, & Sluser, 1995; Conger, 1973, p. 3; Curtiss & Friedman, 1973; Curtiss & Warren, 1973). (from CALSCA)
