Building a Competency Framework for Soft Skills / Transversal Skills in FET (originally scheduled for May 2023)

Building a Competency Framework for Soft Skills / Transversal Skills in FET

This session is a follow-on from a previous session introducing the importance of soft skills/transversal skills for the future world of work and the key position that FET holds in the delivery of these skills.

This session will focus in on those identified priority soft skills and showcase some work already carried out across the education sector. This will form a starting point for the discussion of the requirements of building a soft skills competency framework within FET. Methods of teaching these skills will be addressed and case studies and scenarios will be shared as a basis for the discussion. This is very relevant to the development of programmes for FET.
Recognising the expertise of those in attendance, outcomes from these conversations will be integrated into future research and will feed into the development of the competency framework.

The target audience for this event is: FET staff including teachers, tutors, trainers, co-ordinators, managers.
