Soft Skills for Students

Explore, discover & develop

team (3).png

Soft skills are essential for students to develop. Although modern day technology has increased the ease for online communication, there is still a need to learn to communicate effectively and work with others in face-to-face situations. Organisations are also increasingly looking for employees who show high levels of emotional intelligence and an ability to work well with others.

We work with secondary school, college and university students to help improve their people skills to be more successful in school, home, university and in their future working lives. We offer a range of programmes, from communication skills to self-awareness, leadership to wellbeing and stress management.

We mix experiential activity with up to date theory and create learning that is tailored to meet your needs. The courses can be run at your venue or through engaging live online methods and are designed to fit in with your timetable. 


With our long-standing history of successful partnerships with some of the top schools within the UK, as well as our on-going development work with multi-national organisations, you can be assured of the highest quality training for your students.

What makes our programmes different?


Face-to-Face or Online

Brain-Friendly Methods

We're experts in creating programmes that follow brain-friendly principles, which help to make the learning 'stick' in an enjoyable way.

"We have been using Team Thinking for a number of years. Following our ethos to want students to learn, lead and make a difference, the workshops are ideal to help the prefects learn about playing to their strengths, strategies for dealing with difficult conversations and situations, enhancing leadership and team-building skills and effective communication"

"We have worked with Team Thinking for more than a decade and have always had the best experiences. Our students have definitely benefitted from working with trainers who bring the perfect combination of their experience from working with large corporations and the empathy required to work with young people. Students feel both safe and challenged and they always leave with practical tips on how to work more confidently in their roles.
