Our world is changing quickly. This means young people need to broaden their knowledge, competencies and attributes to flourish. These are often called 21st century capabilities. In the Australian Curriculum they are called general capabilities2 and the Year 9-12 project in Tasmania refers to transferable skills14. These skills are not new but are now considered very important in Australia and around the world. Of course, content knowledge and skills continue to matter too. For example, to solve a scientific problem a person needs not only the 21st century capability of critical thinking, but also relevant scientific understanding and technical expertise, as well as foundational literacy and numeracy skills.
