Abstract: Abstract The problem-solving and communicative skills are part of the so-called “transversal skills”, referred to as the ability of transferring the knowledge from one context (school) to another context (workplace). A review to policy makers’ reports highlights the importance of the development of transferable skills for determination the competitiveness and the innovation in social communities. Transversal skills are required by each occupation individually and are considered necessary for the establishment of an integrated professional, social and individual profile. Today’s workplaces require people who can solve problems in collaboration with others. With starting point the assessments’ results for Collaboration Problem Solving (CBS) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development [(OECD) PISA 2015 results; OECD Publishing (2017)], this paper reviews the challenges and recommendations for the development of transversal skills, as critical and necessary in educational setting and workplaces, with the basic aim the further scientific re-search under the framework of connecting education with workplaces.
