In Australia and internationally, there is a growing consensus that a range of attributes and expertise are necessary to successfully navigate life in an increasingly complex world. The attributes or competencies that are developed alongside content knowledge and skills are what we call ‘capabilities’.

The degree to which individuals thrive is bound up with the relationships, ideas and events that comprise their education. In large part, their success relies on how well they grasp the“how”of learning, what it looks like to be a curious, creative, problem solving, team player. To move through life with opportunities to flourish and succeed, young people need to build their social skills, their understanding of others, their ability to adapt and learn from challenges and change.

From the earliest years, throughout preschool, schooling, tertiary education, and onwards into adulthood, capabilities are cultivated and grown through an accumulation of moments, interactions, activities and habits formed in the classroom, the home, the workplace, the community and the social sphere.
