The importance of foundation skills

Foundation skills are essential for successful participation in work, education and community life. The term ‘foundation skills’ has been adopted at a national level to describe the generic skills that underpin the development and application of more specific skills named in units of competency.

This webinar provides a 6-step process to identifying and integrating foundation skills into the design of training and assessment activities, which seek to enhance the skills needed by learners to work, live and learn.

Key Outcomes:

  • Explain the importance of foundation skills
  • Identify the benefits of examining the foundation skills found in a unit of competency
  • State the compliance implications for not covering foundation skills 
  • Describe the 6-step process to identifying and integrating foundation skills into training and assessment activities.
