What is the level of essential skills in the UK, and is it improving?

8 July | 10:00 am - 10:45 am

Many of us become teachers because we want to make a difference to young people’s lives. We want them to be better prepared for their next steps and, ultimately, for adulthood. The links between essential skills like teamwork & problem solving and academic outcomes has been established. Here, we explore the inaugural ‘Essential Skills Tracker’, which takes a view across the whole UK population. It’s the most complete picture we’ve ever had of who is building their essential skills and the impact this has on a wide range of life outcomes – including employment, income, social mobility, and wellbeing.
