Abstract

In this report we assess the evidence on the long-run associations between early social, emotional and cognitive skills (focusing on measures before age six) and a range of later outcomes. We summarize these skills under the umbrella term of ‘life skills’ and provide a taxonomy, or descriptive model, of specific skill sets. Regarding outcomes, we focus on educational attainment, employment, income, health, and wellbeing. There are three elements to this report: 1. A definition and taxonomy of key social, emotional, and cognitive skills 2. A literature review of evidence on the relationship between childhood social, emotional and cognitive skills and a range of later outcomes 3. New analysis of the British Cohort Study (BCS) on the long-run benefits and predictive power of early skills, using assessments made at age five and linking them to outcomes later in life, up to age 42.
