What are the ‘soft skills’ employers want? What are the ‘soft skills’ employers want? We often read news stories about how employers feel that applicants who’ve left school, college or university lack the ‘soft skills’ they want.

e-Skills for the 21st Century - Information and communication technologies - Enterprise and Industry The competitiveness and innovation capability of the European industry as well as social cohesion are increasingly dependent on the strategic and efficient use of new information and communication technologies as well as the knowledge, skills, competences and inventiveness of the European workforce and citizens. There is broad consensus about the crucial importance of e-skills for Europe: e-skills shortages, gaps and mismatches and a digital divide will affect negatively growth, competitiveness, innovation, employment and social cohesion in Europe. As new technologies are developing rapidly, e-skills are increasingly sophisticated and need to be constantly updated. There is a critical need for individuals with creativity, innovation and higher-level conceptual skills.

See also where you will find detailed job descriptions of many of the above jobs.

CAS Online Here’s some ideas for how you could use the Hour of Code to engage and excite your colleagues, children and their parents. Many of you will be familiar with the Hour of Code and the great resources on Two years ago, the Hour of Code resources provided a great introduction to programming at a time when the computing curriculum was still very new.

Getting Girls Interested in Science Author: Suzanne Elvidge BSc (hons), MSc - Updated: 24 August 2012| Traditionally, science - particularly chemistry and physics, as well as maths, computing and technology - has been a male-dominated area. Girls may not be interested in science as a study or as a career because they think it is too hard, or do not want to do something where they might be the only girl in the class. So what can be done to encourage more girls to get interested in science? Encouraging Girls into Science Parents can encourage girls to be interested in science – perhaps by going to science and technology museums at the weekend or during school holidays, by watching television programmes or listening to radio programmes about science, or by talking about science stories on the news.
