Learn more about the skills that make us employable and how best to teach them in this series of eight free webinars hosted by global teaching and learning experts.


The biggest change since the Industrial Revolution is now unfolding. To equip themselves for this new world, today’s learners must grow, demonstrate and evolve their talents, and our education system must support them.

In a recent Pearson Global Learner Survey, 78% of respondents said they needed to do more to develop their own soft skills. We call these in-demand skills Personal and Social Capabilities: the human skills like communication, creativity and critical thinking that are often overlooked because they are challenging to teach, assess and showcase.

In this series of free webinars for educators and leaders, you will learn more about the skills that make us employable and how best to teach them. The first webinar will establish the broader range of skills needed to succeed at different ages and stages, then the series will continue throughout February and March with weekly webinars each taking a deeper dive into the crucial ‘soft skills’ or ‘21st century skills’ that we call Personal and Social Capabilities.
