Why do schools need to offer 21st Century Skills?

EtonX’s 21st century skills courses complement your school’s academic curriculum and ensure that students develop the essential soft skills they will need to thrive throughout their life.

Only 1 in 5

pupils say that the school curriculum helps them ‘a lot’ with the development of life skills.

(Sutton Trust, Life Lessons Report, 2017)

92%

of executives say that soft skills are equally important or more important than technical skills.

(LinkedIn, Workplace Learning Report, 2018)

1/4

of employers have difficulty filling entry-level vacancies because applicants lack soft skills.
