The competencies and characteristics learners need (free resource offer)

The disruption to young people’s education means that, more than ever, schools are thinking beyond academic success. ASDAN’s Martina Veale identifies three essential competencies and characteristics that our students will need to thrive – and offers some free resources to help

The education sector is in uncharted territory as it seeks to help young people “catch-up” on lost learning, as well as equipping them with the skills and attributes they need to thrive in a post-pandemic world.

What we do know is that the huge disruption caused by the pandemic has had a particularly damaging impact on young people from poorer families and will result in “long-term effects on their education progression and labour market performance” (Blundell et al, 2021).

As an education charity which aims to engage and empower young people in greatest need, ASDAN has set out to help schools respond to this unique challenge.
