All about skills
Skills are something we learn through experience and that we can apply to things we do. We might pick these up at school, work, during activities or simply by spending time with our family and friends.
How we develop our skills
There are lots of different situations where we can gain and develop our skills. For example, you could use critical thinking in a maths lesson or learning to collaborate with others while playing football with your team.
Why skills are important
We all use and develop our skills every day. Whether you’re applying for an apprenticeship, university or a job – the person looking at your application will want to know what skills you have and how you use them.
