Irish Pilot Implementation Update
What are Transversal Skills?
Transversal skills refer to a broad set of key skills that are known to be critically important to
success in school, further education and the world of work.
They include
the ability to think critically, take initiative, use digital tools, solve problems and work collaboratively.
Our Irish Context
The introduction of transversal competencies to education systems
requires a shift in thinking
how we teach

how students learn
. Assessment can guide or inhibit this
Assessment of Transversal Competencies (UNESCO: 2016)
Learners will be enabled
to use and analyse information in new and creative ways, to investigate issues, to explore, to think for themselves, to be creative in solving problems
to apply their learning
to new challenges and situations
... these competences and skills are
critical to the preparation of young people for learning and living.
