Transferable skills include cognitive, social and emotional skills. Their development enables the continuation of learning and productivity.
What Are Transferable Skills? Transferable skills are abilities and talents which are relevant to a wide range of different jobs and industries that you might be interested in as well as your education pathway. You already have many different transferable skills such as communication, teamwork and initiative. You can develop your transferable skills and use them in your education. In your task this week you will be looking at the transferable skills you already have and how they could help you when thinking about career opportunities after you’ve finished your education.
