Knowledge cannot be reduced to the cognitive dimension alone. School and work should make it possible to learn and grow, in other words to let people develop their personality, talents, and individual qualities. Character skills are traits that influence the ability to target the chosen goals, determine the quality of relationships and affect the capacity to make decisions. Therefore, they are part and parcel of any learning process.
