Soft Skills for Teaching Techniques

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

Soft skills are the personal attributes of each individual, as well as personality traits, social skills and communication skills. Soft skills characterize how an individual interacts with peers within and outside the work environment.


Different from the so-called hard skills, soft skills involve emotions and intuitions, both responsible for the ability to express and interpret the feelings of another person. Teachers need to be highly skilled in all these areas to be excellent in their profession.


For a teacher, it is not just important to give a quality lecture; they also need to be able to transmit knowledge, skills and values at the same time. Soft skills for teachers are thus as important as their in-depth knowledge of the particular subject which they teach. It is only through communication skills that a teacher can introduce creative and effective solutions to the students’ problems.
