Lifeskills workshops

Short, interactive workshops on a range of key skills to help you get ahead in your professional life – ideal for young professionals and those moving into roles that require new skills.

Our free, UK based, Lifeskills workshops are designed to provide a brief introduction to key topics, relevant to any professional looking to enhance their skill set. Our generic Lifeskills workshops focus on key soft skills, allowing us to complement the more technically-focused events produced by the IET.

All of our interactive Lifeskills workshops will give you a taster on topics such as Introduction to management, Fundamentals of project management, and Managing change. These short, introductory sessions will help you to decide if you would like to look further into these subjects in the future.  

You can see the current list of topics via the right hand link.

The IET supports the delivery of Lifeskills as part of our drive to increase skills and professionalism in the engineering sectors. Many of the topics covered will assist anyone looking to become professionally registered, as they link in with of the competencies set out in the UK Spec. Members and non-members are encouraged to attend, and they provide a great opportunity to network and meet new people in your region. In addition to this, you can also record your attendance of a Lifeskills as part of your Continuous Professional Development (CPD). Each Lifeskills will give you 3 hours of CPD.

To find out what Lifeskills are currently scheduled for your area, please use the events search or visit My Community online. Remember, you will always be welcome at any Local Network, not just the one nearest to home.

All of our Lifeskills can be run in-company but cannot be offered free of charge due to our charitable objectives. If you would like a quote for a Lifeskills workshop to be delivered in your organisation, please contact the professional development team using the details below.
