The Essential Skills Challenge

The 9 Essential Skills (reading text, oral communication, numeracy, digital, writing, continuous learning, document use, thinking, and working with others) are the foundation for all skilled trades and technologies.

Through our Essential Skills Challenge, a one-hour activity which is 100% hands-on, we teach students about the importance of these skills, and then put them to the test.
