The PE Life Skills Award  Leadership Skills Foundation logo

The only award that recognises and rewards students who have developed life skills through PE.

PE teaches valuable life skills such as resilience, leadership, collaboration, and independence, which can inspire and empower them to excel in all areas of their lives. However, most of this learning can go unnoticed.

Now in its fourth year, this award lets teachers recognise students' learning through assessments in the PE curriculum. It helps students value PE and develop a positive relationship with physical activity for the future. 

The PE Life Skills Award is accredited by Leadership Skills Foundation and suitable for both primary and secondary levels. To purchase, you will complete the transaction through the Leadership Skills Foundation website.
