As I’ve mentioned previously, the lack of documentation on what other skills and competencies frameworks were reviewed and why the choices were made for Skills for Success limits understanding how and why the skills and definitions were developed. In thinking about the new Skills for Success framework, a comparison with other frameworks can be useful.
In the following table, I’ve tried to matched the skills from the Essential Skills Framework, Skills for Success, the Skills and Competencies Taxonomy and the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework. The three latter frameworks acknowledge their roots in the Essential Skills Framework.
I appreciate that reducing the skills to a table does not do service to the complexity that lies beneath each framework. Please treat this table for what it is, my best guess at aligning the skills frameworks.
Note: the table doesn’t show well within this post, so please click on the link below and the PDF will open in a new window.
