Added value of behavioural skills

In view of the economic context and challenges facing Europe today, as well as the specific situation of the job market, the institutions working in the area of social and employment inclusion have a particularly important part to play in the construction of solutions leading to:

  • development of the skills of job-seekers
  • support for firms wishing to develop the continuous training of their employees
  • improved training of teaching personnel of all kinds.

In this context, and in order to benefit the durable insertion of trainees, the development of key educational tools designed for teaching and observing behavioural skills in working situations is very important.

In fact these skills are seen as strategic by both businesses and training operators. Learning them makes it possible to respond to the development of the organisation of work and take personal development into account.

Les attentes formulées régulièrement par l’ensemble des acteurs du monde du travail et de la formation seront donc entendues et rencontrées:

The expectations regularly formulated by all the stakeholders in the world of work and training are therefore listened to and met: developing behavioural skills in trainees.

These skills are already worked on during professional training, but this is usually informal in educational practice. It has become necessary to consolidate this aspect of training. Learning behavioural skills is now indispensable, alongside technical skills and knowledge.

As with technical competences, behavioural skills can be put to use in the role play used to support learning in the context of training assessments. This requires them to be clearly defined, identified, and broken down into observable indices, which our project has set itself as objectives.
