In the aftermath of a global crisis, meta skills are an essential underpinning of employability and lifelong learning, supporting people to adapt and switch sectors as the world recovers and changes. We don’t know what the economy will look like after the pandemic, or twenty or thirty years on from then, but we do know that labour market adaptability will be crucial – and when the only constant is change, the only safe investment is in our ability to adapt. Meta skills equip individuals with the ability to train and retrain with ease and confidence.
By developing mental fitness and resilience, we can support people to become the best version of themselves – positive about their future and ready to seize the opportunities that come their way. Opportunity, means and motivation – all three elements need to be in place in order to maximise human potential and create sustainable, far-reaching and impactful change across society.
This webinar will explore the reasons why these meta skills are essential to individuals, communities, employers and the economy – and how we can support people to build the toolkit of skills they need to support them through a lifetime of learning. Join Dan Howard (NCFE Operations Director for Learning for Work), Andrew Barton (Senior Operations Manager for Learning for Work) along with some guests, for a rich discussion on this topic.
