Why skills?

For many students, there is a lack of clarity about choosing the next course of study. They hardly have a map of where their qualities and interests lie.

An appropriate way to understand where competencies lie is to develop skills. It easily indicates where your students’ strengths lie and shows the progression over a longer time frame.

Especially in career orientation, skills can be a relevant means of making the learning pathway concrete. The skills provide a capstone in a student’s personal development.

The art of skill development

Skills development is done with a competency profile. It provides information about the student’s qualities and talents and outlines the learning pathway. Competencies are divided into skills. If the student meets the various skills, then various competencies can be achieved. It is a way to monitor students’ progress, where development can be easily charted. The learner decides which route to take to develop. Personalized learning is the key to effective progression.
