Identify courses that build enterprise skills

As technology and automation sweep through our workplaces, enterprise skills are the skills which current and future workers need to thrive in their future careers.

These skills are increasingly important in a world of work where an average 15 year-old is expected to navigate 17 jobs across 5 different careers.
