Essential Employability Skills (EES)
Teaching: Sep 2015
We need to prepare for the world of work by developing skills that EMPLOYERS say are important.
Transferrable skills can be applied in any job, in any employment sector. Developing these skills makes us more employable.
We already know the importance of communication, digital literacy and numeracy skills. But employers are looking for something more…
The Essential Employability Skills qualification includes four skills that are considered important for employability:
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving – identifying problems and deciding the best ways to solve them
- Planning and Organisation – carrying out a task, deciding what resources are required by who and when
- Creativity and Innovation - thinking up ideas and creating ways to develop them
- Personal Effectiveness – the skills needed to work alone and in a team.
