What are Meta-Skills?
According to Skills Development Scotland
A meta skill is a “higher-order” skill that enables you to better learn other skills and improve your existing ones.
Essentially, meta skills are the foundation for developing, cultivating, and executing other skills.
Hard skills vs. soft skills
Hard skills refer to technical knowledge and training, while soft skills describe personal and behavioural traits such as communication skills and leadership. These might also be referred to as skills (hard) and qualities (soft).
Both skill types are essential for advancement in the vast majority of careers. Important skills depend on several factors, including the type of job, position in the company’s hierarchy and necessary qualifications. Almost all jobs will require certain soft skills to cooperate with others, perform effectively and adapt to the workplace. It’s important to consider your skills and adapt your CV depending on the requirements outlined in the job description.
