Workplace Core Skills
Core Skills are the broad, transferable skills that help to develop the main capabilities people need to be full, active and responsible members of society.
Workplace Core Skills were specifically developed to assess core skills in a work environment. They contribute to employability and are a component of Modern Apprenticeships in Scotland.
The five Workplace Core Skills are:
- Information and Communication Technology
- Problem Solving
- Working with Others
Each Workplace Core Skill is available at five levels (SCQF levels 3 to 6).
Workplace Core Skills, can be signposted against qualifications to highlight opportunities for assessment. This is mandatory for SVQs.
