Survey on embedded Core Skills

In September 2004, the Core Skills Assessment Panel commissioned a small piece of research to explore the candidate's awareness of embedded Core Skills including whether there was any development in Core Skills or whether current practice only consisted of assessing existing skills. The Panel also wanted to gauge the added value provided by embedded Core Skills and the transferability/ relevance to other situations as perceived by the learners. This report was presented to the Assessment Panel February 2005.
