The social skills set will accompany all courses and will give the participants the opportunity to
Identity within a group
Giving and Receiving feedback in a positive way
Different styles of Communication
Self esteem and self worth sessions
It is envisaged that young people will improve their skills in these fields which will increase their own understanding of themselves.
These skill sets can be tailor-made and adapted to any situation, either within education or on a more social setting (community cohesion and community safety)
Social skills are the skills we use to communicate with each other, both verbally and non-verbally, through gestures, body language and image.
As human beings we are sociable creatures and have developed many ways to communicate our messages, thoughts and feelings with others. What is said is influenced by both verbal language and the way we use it, tone of voice, volume of speech and the words we choose, as well as by more subtle messages such as body language, gestures and other non-verbal communication methods.
Developing social skills is about being aware of how we communicate with others, the messages we send and how methods of communication can be improved to make the way we communicate more efficient and effective.
