The article discusses the transversal competences in the Finnish national core curriculum for basic education and how they can be implemented in daily school life. The current Finnish core curriculum for basic education (2014) contains the objectives and core content of all school subjects. In addition, it introduces seven transversal competences that are seen as especially essential for participating in today’s and tomorrow’s society. With transversal competences, education aims to support students’ growth as human beings, enhance competences needed for participating in democratic society, and support the development of a sustainable way of living. It is also essential to support students in recognizing their own strengths and developmental possibilities and in appreciating themselves. The article also reflects on how transversal skills can be evaluated and what role evaluation plays in these competences. The basic conditions of learning transversal competences are that all partners of the school community are aware of the importance of these competences.
