Life skills are generic skills, relevant to many diverse experiences throughout life. They should be taught with a view to gain maximum impact from skill lessons.

NILA envisages the development of life skills education as a dynamic and involving process, which should involve children, parents, and the local community.

Inclusive education is meant to be an understanding of inclusion as an approach to education for all children. The core of inclusive education is the human right to education. According to UNICEF, an education system is inclusive if it “encompasses all students and welcomes and supports them to learn. No one should be excluded. Every child has a right to inclusive education, including children with disabilities.” NILA supports schools to focus on UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR LEARNING as a pedagogy that can facilitate inclusion. Universal Design is a way for teachers to support all students’ learning, even if each student learn differently.
