S KILL 

DESCRIPTION 

Numeracy

  • Selects from, and applies, an expanding range of mathematical and problem-solving strategies

Reading

  • Interprets and critically analyses, and applies, the required strategies to construct meaning from complex texts

Writing

  • Displays a knowledge of structure and layout, employing a broad vocabulary, grammatical structure, and the conventions required to text

Teamwork

  • Actively identifies the requirements of important communication exchanges, selecting required channels, format, tone and content to suit the purpose and audience, and monitoring the impact when creating and resolving issues
  • Collaborates with others to achieve joint outcomes, playing an active role in facilitating effective group interaction, influencing direction and, on occasion, taking a leadership role

Planning and organising

  • Sequences and schedules complex activities, monitors implementation and manages relevant communication, in a collaborative project environment
  • Uses systematic, analytical processes in complex, non-routine situations, setting goals, gathering relevant information and identifying, and evaluating, options against the agreed criteria

Problem solving

  • Uses analytical processes to decide on a course of action, establishing the criteria for deciding between options and seeking input, and advice from others, before taking action when necessary

Technology

  • Uses a range of digitally based technology and applications to access and filter data, extract, organise, integrate, and share relevant information, in increasingly effective ways
