Essential Skills Resource Library

Essential Skills are the skills people need to succeed in their studies, in the workplace and in life. They are the foundation for learning all other skills and are often referred to as the Velcro skills. If you don’t have them, it is hard for other skills to stick. It is hard to be a good problem solver if you can’t find the information you need in a document or chart in order to solve the problem.
