Additional Information

Workplace Core Skills are the broad, transferable skills that help to develop the main capabilities people need to be full, active and responsible members of society. Core Skills contribute to employability, and are a component of Modern Apprenticeships in Scotland.

Workplace Core Skills are skills and abilities that everyone needs in their work. This is true for every job in every workplace.

The Workplace Core Skills are:

Employers look for Workplace Core Skills when they are appointing new staff. They also expect their existing staff to have these skills. Workplace Core Skills are important because they help you work effectively in your present job and also prepare you for jobs which you will do in future.
