What are core transferable skills and why are they important? A skill refers to carrying out a specific task, or being able to do something well. When we talk about core transferable skills we mean skills which can be transferred, or moved, from one setting to a different one – whether that’s from one job to another, or perhaps one hobby to another hobby.
From problem solving to creativity, it’s likely you are already using some core transferable skills. Find out which ones and explore others by watching our short film outlining examples of 8 of these skills.
