In recent years, universities and employers have highlighted the need for students and graduates to develop a range of transferable skills, to enable them to better meet the demands of undergraduate study and the world of work.
In fact, universities and employers consider transferable skills to be the largest skills gap overall. The World Economic Forum estimates that 65 per cent of children today will end up in careers that don't even exist yet. We can't prepare students for all the requirements they may need to be successful in a changing world but we can ensure we equip them to be able to adapt successfully, using their skills and knowledge to meet future employment needs.
We are supporting students to develop these through studying Edexcel International GCSEs (9–1).
