About Life skills
Introduction to the skills program:-
At JB Group of Educational Institutions, we are imparting skills (life & professional skills) to the students through Experiential Learning/ Activity Based Learning methodologies.
Life Skills are those skills which enable an individual to be more competent in dealing with the day to day challenges in a positive way.
Essentially, these skills must be acquired by observing, doing, feeling and thinking for effective learning, retention and future application.
Professional skills are the core specializations’ skills and refers to Technical Skills/ Management Skills/ Pharmaceutical Skills, etc.

UNICEF defines Life Skills as Behaviour Change or Behaviour Development approach designed to address the balance of three areas – Knowledge, Attitude & Skills and they lead to Outcome Based Education System which is very much different from Traditional Education System.
Life Skills are essentially those abilities that help to promote physical, mental and emotional well-being and competence to face realities of life.
WHO defines Life Skills as ‘abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life’.
Life Skills bring greater acceptance, better relationships and a healthy, positive life and enables individuals to translate knowledge (what one knows), attitudes and values (what one believes and feels) into actual skills/ abilities/ actions (what to do and how to do it?).
