WORKPLACE READINESS SKILLS: Identified by Employers across Virginia as Critical
Employers across Virginia agree that personal qualities, people skills, professional and technology skills are vital to a high quality workforce in Virginia. The Workforce Readiness skills are evident through instructional simulations, project-based learning, work-based learning, and Career and Technical Student Organizations in the SCPS Career & Technical Education settings. All CTE students have the opportunity to apply these workplace readiness skills. The Profile of a Virginia Graduate identifies the skills as a part of the graduates profile. The 21st Century Workplace Readiness Skills for the Commonwealth poster can be found here!
Students with workplace readiness skills are able to apply those employable skills in all areas of their life. These students make sound decisions, adapt to various work situations, exude a positive personality, respect others, practice good work ethics, are academically prepared, and technically skilled.
