Specialised skills include the specific “know-how” needed for a fulfilling and meaningful life and decent employment which learners acquire often as result of their participation in post-basic education, including through technical and vocational education and training ( TVET ) or extra-school activities.These skills may relate to a specific job, task, academic discipline (e.g. teacher, geographer, medical doctor or journalist) or area of particular knowledge and skills (e.g. hobby). Depending on their interest and further learning, individuals may possess one or several specialised skills.
