Why this project?

Many  of us – teachers, HR-managers and psychologists-  agree that  communication, team-working, self-management, problem solving and similar skills are highly needed in today´s business and working life.
In spite of increased awareness these skills are poorly present in Higher education curricula. As for teachers and trainers, more methods for fostering these skills are precious.
 
The CoSki21 project seeks to establish a framework for core skills needed in working life as well as find methods for self-improvement of these skills. 
 Find our results in the presentation and further on this website. Please feel free to use it in your work to foster core skills !
 
This work  hopefully forms a step further  for the work done  previously by ESCO and ATS2020 projects and numerous research projects on core skills, transversal skills and soft skills.
