Employability Skills

Highly Compelling Career Readiness Curriculum

Career Prep Curriculum for Young Adults

Employers continually complain about young people’s lack of critical workplace skills. This deficiency is noted during the interview or when youth begin their jobs. That’s why we developed our employability skills courses: to empower your students with the mindset and skills they need to become leaders in today’s workforce — whether they’re working for a company or organization, as a freelancer or as an entrepreneur.

After completing our employability skills training, your students will understand how to:

  • Recognize the difference between a low-level performer and a high-level performer in the workplace
  • Adopt the mindset and attitude necessary to become a top performer in the workplace
  • Apply professionalism to everything they do — from being on time and how they dress to how they communicate and how they get the work done
  • Become a dependable contributor to their organization by accomplishing tasks well and on time
  • Go above and beyond the minimum requirements
  • Work well with a diverse group of people specific to their workplace goals and situations

At the end of the employability course, students rate themselves and get rated using The 220 Workforce Scale to measure their workplace skills and learn which areas need improvement. Each student makes a final presentation based on this rating and everything he or she has learned during the course.
