Soft Skills

Soft skills, sometimes called key skills, core skills, key competencies are those desirable qualities that apply across life situations—traits such as integrity, communication, courtesy, responsibility, flexibility, and teamwork. Soft skills are a combination of people skills, social skills, communication skills, character traits, attitudes, career attributes, and social and emotional intelligence quotients among others that enable people to navigate their environment, work well with others, perform well, and achieve their goals.

Four traits that the curriculum focuses on are: (1) Empathy and Compassion, (2) Values, (3) Response-ability, and (4) Pro-social skills.

These traits and attitudes for character development are nurtured by giving children the opportunity to modify behaviour by exercising, applying, practicing and demonstrating these through learning opportunities provided in the session flow while working on the four basic themes for each group with the aim of developing self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-improvement.
