The PSHE Association's priorities for action
1.Increase access to information, advice and support on matters that affect children and young people's life chances
2. Improve standards in teaching and learning to raise attainment for all
3. Remove barriers to achievement – children and young people cannot learn if they are worried about relationships, money or personal safety
4. Reduce inequalities by teaching about the health and economic issues at the heart of them support communities by developing relationship skills, tolerance and responsibility
5. Respond to global demands of commerce and industry for a workforce that has the personal and social skills and dispositions needed to compete in the 21st century.
In addition to literacy and numeracy, employers and parents also want young people who are healthy, able to form good relationships, willing to take responsibility, manage risk and be resilient. PSHE education makes a unique contribution to addressing these outcomes.
