People need lots of different kinds of skills to do things well … whether its at work, in the classroom or following a hobby or interest.
As well as job-related skills, they need to know how to communicate and work with numbers. Knowing the basics of using ICT is also important as everything today seems to involve some kind of technology.
And then there are skills that help learners to learn. For example, being able to work with other people and solve problems are two important skills that help move learning forward. And finally, people knowing how they learn can help them improve their own performance.
NYA offers support to help you develop all of these core or key skills.
