We were blown away by the standard of your responses this week and it’s fantastic to see that you all understand how important our key skills are.
By the way, there was no correct answer as to which skill is the most important - we just wanted to see you using some good reasoning in your answers! The winners this time are…

neat_situation of Preston Manor School, who creatively described the skill of creativity as “light in the darkness”.
Great work! Well done!

You could think about which one might be the most important for your dream job OR you could think about which one is the most important for workers in general. Don't forget to give reasons for your choice!
