PSHE makes a significant contribution to personal development by helping young people to build their personal identities, confidence and self-esteem, make career choices, and understand what influences their decisions, including financial ones. Developing self-understanding, empathy, and the ability to work with others will help young people to enjoy healthy and productive relationships in all aspects of their lives.
