Students will use these competencies to live, learn, work and contribute as active members of their communities. More complex than skills, the competencies draw also on knowledge, attitudes and values in ways that lead to action. They are not separate or stand-alone. They are the key to learning in every learning area and, therefore, need to be prioritised in planning and teaching. “The competencies draw also on knowledge attitudes and values in ways that lead to action” The development of the competencies is both an end in itself (a goal) and the means by which other ends are achieved. Successful learners make use of the competencies in combination with all the other resources available to them eg the Bible, knowledge, tools and skills. Students need to be challenged and supported to develop them in contexts that are increasingly wide ranging and complex.
