The Most Important Life and Work Skills in 2021 + Beyond

EPALE Ireland are hosting our National Day 2021!

EPALE Ireland hosts a National Day each year in the hopes of responding to our community's needs. This year, in answer to the call, we will explore the theme of life and work skills and leave our participants with more than food for thought!

Most of us are aware that life and work skills are nuanced and wide-reaching. Yet, too many of us have an antiquated understanding of what constitutes a work and life skill. Such can hinder our professional and personal growth, creating roadblocks instead of opportunities. It is especially vital in our current climate to reflect on this topic, deepen our understanding, and gear ourselves for the present and future.

Journey with us on the 25th to do just that!
