"Standards-plus" skills needed in future workforce

NESTA, which stands for the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts in the United Kingdom, recently commissioned a study on the attitudes of middle teenagers toward work.

In addition to hard skills, the report suggests that the workforce of tomorrow will require broader qualities - the ability to creatively problem solve, to apply interpersonal skills and to innovate, what the executive summary of the report calls a "standards-plus" set of skills.
