21st Century Skills
21st century skills can impact people's personal and professional lives throughout all stages. 21st century skills (also called transversal skills) are life skills widely transferable to different settings and not specific to a job, task, sector, discipline, and occupation. They enable people to grow, prosper, and achieve higher levels of welfare. #Skills21 are:
- Essential to human development.
- Necessary to navigate healthy, productive and happy lives.
- Reusable because they are transferable from one field of life to another.
- Not specifically related to a particular job, task, field, discipline, or occupation.
