Future Talent Group is proud to support the Skills Builder Universal Framework, a timely and needed skills nurturing framework launched on 20th May 2020.

The Skills Builder Framework clearly defines the skills we need to succeed in education, work and life.

With the impact of COVID-19 already hitting the most disadvantaged in our communities the hardest and changing the nature of education and work overnight, we all need to act now to ensure we do not widen the disadvantage gap.

Essential skills are highly transferable skills like listening, problem solving and teamwork. They can, and should, be developed throughout our lives and can’t be automated out. They are the foundation for developing new technical and job-specific skills, including digital skills.

So... what is the Skills Builder Universal Framework?

The Skills Builder Universal Framework, developed by the Essential Skills Taskforce, is a clear, measurable and authoritative framework for essential skills that sets out how they can be identified in practice. It provides a common language that can be easily understood and adopted from the classroom to the boardroom.

The universal framework defines the essential skills as; listening, speaking, problem solving, creativity, staying positive, aiming high, leadership and teamwork. Hundreds of schools are already using the framework and it is now being adopted by trailblazing employers including Boots, KPMG, Jacobs and Tideway.
