Today’s young people are growing up in a fast-paced world. As new technologies, labour markets and digital channels open up new opportunities, they also pose new challenges for the world’s future citizens and workforce.
To be fully prepared for life and work in a global economy, it is essential that young people have the opportunity to develop the right skills.
Core skills, sometimes referred to as deep learning skills or 21st-century learning skills, introduce young people to new ways of working, new ways of thinking, and new ways of living in a global world.
Developing these skills will help young people grow into creative and critical citizens, ready to shape the future for themselves and future generation.
Teachers and School Leaders need to be empowered and enabled to create a learning environment where they can deliver teaching and learning which allows young people to develop core skills and competencies.
This next phase of the Connecting Classrooms Core Skills programme is an in-depth focus on individual core skills.
