21st Century Skills for Employment

Home / 21st Century Skills for Employment

With the onset of the 21st century, the entire world has witnessed an era of intense transformation in all areas, whether it is education, global trade and economy, technology or society. Recently, the covid-19 pandemic is also throwing up challenges for an individual to cope with its impacts. Naturally, for such times, a different skill–set is required that would enable an individual to cope-up and succeed in facing the challenges in real-life, leading to his holistic progress. These skills are addressed as 21st Century Skills/ Learning Skills/ Transversal Competencies etc. Thus, the 21st Century Skills are the skills that are required by an individual for his/ her holistic development so that he/she can contribute to the progress and development of his society/ nation and world.

Empowering our students with these skills is another challenging task, which the Board is committed to accomplish. While the Nation has already adopted and initiated several innovative policies and practices to empower our students with the 21st century skills, it is required that all stakeholders should not only have a clear understanding of them, but also collectively collaborate towards attaining the 21st century skills in each learner. The present Course on 21st Century Skills has been prepared with the same aim.
