Developing soft skills
Flowing through all our work is a focus on the whole person. Every Barrier Breakers project is designed to encourage the development of soft skills – a range of 40 innate human competencies, including confidence, communication, teamwork, self-motivation, time-management, and creativity.
Soft skills determine how we live, learn, and work, and are now considered so essential to personal and professional success that they’re also known as the C21st skills. They empower individuals to take control of their life, increase their employability, and improve their well-being.
Our current focus is working with disadvantaged young people aged 16 – 24, inspiring them to achieve their potential and to gain the employability and life skills that will allow them to do this.
