The adequate teacher professionalism involves motivational, communicative, practical and vocational dimensions that go far beyond the classroom contexts. It contributes to the overall development of the school organization, initiatives and projects in the relationship with the large family, community and social reality in which it is immersed. What are the skills of professional teachers today? What self-assessment actions and devices can support their professional development? The concept of competence refers to a series of necessary specialist knowledge, but no longer sufficient for teacher training: specialist competences need to be “oriented” and finalized by meta-skills progressively refined by a practice that makes a virtuous circle with theory. This paper aims to provide operational answers to these questions and contribute to the expansion of the framework for Soft Skills assessment. After having described the aims and methodological principles that inspired the research conducted with 1,166 Sicilian pre-service and in-service teachers, we present the SSI (Soft Skills Inventory), a self-assessment tool for teacher’s organizational-managerial and relational skills.
