The Identification and Measuring Innovative Characteristics in Young People

There is a great deal that schools and colleges can do across the curriculum and through extra-curricular activities to develop young people’s innovative skills. Teaching style is influential as is an ethos and culture tolerant of experimentation, where students are encouraged to be adventurous in their thinking and approaches to learning. Regardless of subject discipline, a problem-solving, curiosity-driven approach helps develop creativity. When students work together on projects, they are developing the teamwork skills needed in the workplace. Group project work can also develop leadership skills, personal self-efficacy and energy.
