What Are Essential Skills?

Have you ever heard of soft skills, 21st Century skills or non-cognitive skills? Proponents of all camps behind those terms recognize that these skills are essential for students’ success.

At PAIRIN, we use the term ‘Essential Skills.’ We like this term because it communicates how these are skills that are essential in any workplace, team or classroom.

Essential skills encompass all concepts of profession, personal, social and entrepreneurial skills that are needed for success in career and life.
