Student Core Competencies
Lethbridge College has advocated some form of student competencies for the last 12 years. Now referred to as Student Core Competencies, these areas of student development were formerly known as “21st-Century Skills” and, before that, “College-Wide Outcomes.” But what does this mean? Student Core Competencies might be described as soft skills, life skills, professional skills, or employment skills. These are skills all students will develop to varying levels during their time at Lethbridge College—in addition to the knowledge and skills gained in their areas of subject matter expertise. Core competencies are developed both inside and outside of the classroom. And although these competencies go beyond subject matter and program focus, they are essential to student success.
