Core Skills for Work

The Core Skills for Work Developmental Framework (CSfW) describes the core non-technical skills that have been identified by Australian employers as important for successful participation in work.

The CSfW can be used in a number of ways. For example:

  • Educators, trainers and those who work with job seekers can use the framework to develop a common language and understanding about the skills and knowledge employers are looking for, and assist people looking for work to clearly describe their strengths, as well as areas for improvement
  • Educators, trainers and those who work with job seekers can use the framework to develop resources and programs that support people to develop the skills and knowledge that employers want.
