The Learning Framework

The LSE framework offers an overarching framework for life skills learning that is applicable across Europe.

The framework aims to establish a common understanding of life skills by defining eight key types of capabilities necessary to be an active participant in life and work. For each capability there are two aspects, difficulty of skill/capability level and familiarity of context, which allow for a range of starting points and support the recognition of learners’ progression.

The framework is not a curriculum, syllabus or scheme of work to be followed but a simple, yet powerful, tool to facilitate life skills curriculum development.

The framework is available in English, Slovenian, Danish, French and Greek.
