Skills are something you learn through experience, and that you can apply to things you do. You might pick them up at school or work, during activities, or simply by spending time with your family and friends.
They’re important in all areas of life, can be super varied and are used in lots of different situations. You could be working on your problem solving skills in maths, developing your organisation skills while packing for a trip or sharpening your communication skills trying to explain what a meme is.
When you’re applying to university, college, an apprenticeship or for a job, the person looking at your application will want to know what your skills are – and how you use them.
