Essential skills

Working alongside businesses and partners, Business in the Community (BITC) is developing a campaign on essential skills. Essential skills are critical to every individual and every business. They include communication, problem solving, creativity, resilience, aiming high, leadership and teamwork. They are vital to social mobility and job mobility, so that everyone, regardless of background, can succeed and thrive.

BITC has a unique position to lead action on essential skills, at every stage of an individual’s career journey, from education to employment. This means making interventions from the classroom to the boardroom. It also means developing a shared language on skills that builds a bridge between the worlds of education and employment.
