Developing and Accrediting Personal Skills and Competencies
01 April 2007
This report is the outcome of a review and consultation project commissioned by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authoriy (QCA) from Futurelab. The aims of the exercise were to:
- draw together a review of current projects and initiatives which provide insights into different approaches to developing young people’s skills and competencies (broadly classified as ‘21st century skills’) through non-subject led approaches
- identify how these different approaches might be developed and supported at a national level by QCA
- make recommendations as to assessment and accreditation practices which could be used to promote and develop personal skills and competencies.
