Soft skills. Un terreno di lavoro condiviso
Soft skills. A shared work area
In both the (upper secondary) school world and work contexts, there has been a recent focus on the concept of soft skills, which has in turn raised the possibility of adapting training programmes to future societal developments and the transformation of work. However, on closer inspection, the promotion of soft skills is not a new issue for schools but instead fits perfectly well with the development of key competences for lifelong learning, which are already being given space in school curricula. The article will consider several soft skills in the context of three key European competences of a metacognitive, social and methodological nature (learning to learn, social and civic competences, spirit of initiative and entrepreneurship), highlighting how these mainly relate to learning dimensions which are not only knowledge–based, but also useful in life (personaland professional) with positive effects on the acquisition of significant learning. The article will alsoexamine several instruments that can be used to promote and observe competences and soft skills, looking in depth at several contexts of their application (above all School/Work Experience projects) and evaluation issues. Finally, several examples of evaluation grids and their possible applications will be proposed.

Keywords: soft skills, world of work, key competences for lifelong learning, school–work alternation, evaluation grids.
