What are the employability skills?
There are seven skills that make up the ‘employability skills’. These are:
- Positive attitude
- Thinking skills
- Willingness to learn
All of these can be learnt by doing activities not only in school but also outside of it. For example, playing for your local rugby team could help improve your teamwork, or joining a class to learn a new language could help with your willingness to learn.
You won't necessarily need all of these to get a job, but they will help prove to your employer the value you can bring to their business.
