The Missing Piece, The Essential Skills That Education Forgot
Tom Ravenscroft believes there is something fundamental missing in education and in his book ‘The Missing Piece’ he reflects on the essential, non-academic skills which will be essential to thrive in the 21st Century. These are teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, creativity, listening, presenting, aiming high and staying positive.
He reflects on a decade of work with Enabling Enterprise (see ‘Recent Grants’), how he identified these skills, and the and the principles of how they can be built and used.
With a future of increasing automation, Tom makes a powerful argument that these skills are going to be vital not just in a school environment but in life in general.
