The 12 Transferable Skills
from UNICEF’s Conceptual and Programmatic Framework
From a holistic approach, this synthesis presents the 12 transferable skills based on four dimensions:
- The cognitive dimension (learning to know) includes learning skills such as creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving.
- The instrumental dimension (learning to do) includes skills for employability such as cooperation, negotiation and decision making.
- The individual dimension (learning to be) includes personal skills such as self-management, resilience and communication.
- The social dimension (learning to live together) includes skills for active citizenship such as respect for diversity, empathy and participation.
