The Essential Skills and Volunteering Network shares best practice around the range of ‘soft’, transferable, and underlying employability skills that everyone requires in order to be successful in the working environment. The specific skill set will vary, depending on the vocational/professional sector; but will include communication, numeracy, ICT, working with others, and problem solving. This Network aims to place Essential Skills at the heart of the college curriculum.
