What are Employability Skills?
Welcome to the Employability Skills Summaries website. This website provides quick access to Employability Skills Summaries that have been developed for national Training Package qualifications.
All Training Packages have been reviewed to ensure that Employability Skills feature in their units of competency and all new Training Packages must now include Employability Skills.
Employability Skills are skills that apply across a variety of jobs and life contexts. They are sometimes referred to as key skills, core skills, life skills, essential skills, key competencies, necessary skills, and transferable skills. Industry's preferred term is Employability Skills.
Employability Skills are defined as "skills required not only to gain employment, but also to progress within an enterprise so as to achieve one's potential and contribute successfully to enterprise strategic directions".
There are eight Employability Skills: communication, teamwork, problem solving, initiative and enterprise, planning and organising, self-management, learning, and technology.
The Employability Skills Summary lists the elements of each skill that have been identified for the qualification.
