How were the capabilities developed?

The Institute for Working Futures Pty Ltd and the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC™) examined decades of research across multiple institutions to validate the most important capabilities for the future workplace.

The validation project isolated 14 capabilities as the most important 'soft' or non-technical skills and knowledge required in the future workforce. While not devaluing technical knowledge and skills, these human capabilities emphasise an individual’s overall employability and enable identification of high potential individuals with the talent to succeed in the workforce.
