Foundation Skills for Youth Development

Home / Effective IIECL Methodologies / Foundation Skills for Youth Development

IIECL has designed strategies under its “Intake and Assessment” approach under our PAVE (Pathways Advancing Viable Education/Employment) methodology to identify the baseline of the skill sets of youth and design strategies for building and assessing the skill level of individual youth to achieve all 17 skills.

Foundation skills are those skills that every individual needs to attain and retain employment in the future. There are 17 foundation skills required of all workers. They are organized into four groups:

  • Basic,
  • People,
  • Thinking, and
  • Personal qualities.

All are marketable and transferable skills. These are the building blocks upon which technical job skills training should be applied.
