Educational mission has always been providing not only knowledge but also skills.

Particularly the topical issue of skills has become important in the last few decades. The information is more freely available than ever before and with it the great emphasis that education is placed on knowledge, but it does not seem useful. It is clear that skills training is a key task of education. The widely discussed question is, which skills are most important for the students to get an successful education.

Given the rapid changes taking place in the world at the moment, it is difficult to predict what are the challenges students will face after graduation. The perspective on what it is most important for the 21st century: Skills, consisting of both individual countries and organizations related to education.

The project "Teach for Skills' teachers offered the opportunity to assess what is the most valuable skill of the 21st century, on which the students have to work, and to find like-minded teachers from their own or other countries to jointly plan the training projects selected to improve skills development.

Regular pedagogical practices, successes, problems and outline joint solutions, helped teachers to create new approaches to different 21st century skills to teach to their students. Developped and approved training project descriptions and materials are published, making them available to other teachers.

It is important to note that the project is not selected by chance. The project method is a successful way to ensure the acquisition of skills in the learning process, making it possible to achieve more complex and closer real results.

Thereby, teachers that read this paper will find out they importance of being involved in the next generation value profile.
