In a context of increasing concern about skills deficits in the workplace, discussion of soft skills (along with the various other terms used for the non-job specific skills needed to perform at work) has become inescapable. This session will provide an opportunity to take a critical look at the question of whether or not this attention is warranted.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Able to differentiate the types of skills needed for employment
  • Have considered the relative importance of soft skills    
  • Arrive at their own conclusion regarding the future of soft skills
