Core skills for teachers and school leaders 

Core skills, sometimes referred to as deep learning skills or 21st century learning skills, are the essential skills young people need to be fully prepared for life and work in a global economy. Developed by the British Council and leading education experts, core skills training provides interactive approaches and practical plans for the classroom. You can choose from a selection of introductory or in-depth training packages on offer.
