myLife exists to support youth practitioners, teachers, chaplains and mentors working with young people. There are currently seven courses offered, all of which have been designed to engage young people, particularly those at risk of making unhealthy lifestyle choices and/or offending.
The best bit?
Not only do your young people have the opportunity to grow in character and learn vital life skills but they also have an opportunity to gain an OCR Entry Level 2 certificate upon completion of one of the above courses. This is a fabulous way to motivate your young people, and also celebrate their success!
Each course focuses on a key life skill, with sessions centring in on driving questions which are explored through a range of activities that can be selected according to what your participants will best engage with.
Character development is woven throughout each course and participants are given the opportunity to choose one of eight positive character traits to try and grow in across the sessions.
How it works:
1. Purchase a one-off licence
This includes training for one person.
2. Choose Courses
Choose and buy courses and supporting materials from our online shop
3. Attend free myLife Tutor Training
In order to best equip you to use the resource, we provide tutor training which must be completed before running a course. There are online and in-person options, and we recommend annual training to keep up-to-date and learn from other myLife members! There is additional training for myLife Plus members to support the accreditation process.
4. Schedule your myLife course
Use our online scheduler to set a start date for your course. This helps you to track your progress, gives you access to completion certificates, and allows us to best support you as your run your course.
5. Ongoing support
We created myLife because we believe that every young person should have opportunities to grow and develop and understand their value. We are committed to supporting you as you invest in the young person that you are in contact with. From relevant training to forgotten passwords, we are here to provide our myLife members with ongoing support.
OCR accreditation is currently available for participants in England and Wales when you subscribe with myLife Plus membership. Participants who complete 20 guided learning hours and relevant resource sheets can have their work submitted for an OCR Life and Living Skills Entry Level 2 certificate. Each participant folder costs £30 to submit for the qualification which we process, send to OCR, and then return certificates for successful candidates to you as the myLife member.
