Discover your skills

What are employability skills and why are they important?

The Hertforshire Skills Framework sets out the key employability skils and attributes that Hertforshire employers are looking for from young people.

The framework was put together by Hertfordshire LEP, Youth Connections Hertforshire and the University of Hertfordshire.

The 12 skills are grouped under two main headings:

  • people and personal
  • technical and practical

You should be aiming to develop all of these skills as well as doing well in your studies.  Please watch the video and click on the picture to explore the skills further.
