Shaping Kids for the Real World!
Research shows that the earlier schools prepare students for employment the better they perform in their careers. Today’s employers expect far more from new hires than a degree. With AI charging and changing the workplace, smart simply isn’t good enough. It’s real people skills that matter most to employers now. Things like work ethic, communication, teamwork, creativity. Skills that robots and chatbots can’t replace.
Here's how it works.
Get Ready, Prepared, Go!
The Soft Skills Middle journey begins with our online Career & Life Foundations course – an engaging interactive curriculum designed to help students get ready and become more aware of themselves and how they interact with others. Guided by our fun and inspirational Soft Skills Middle Coach, students will begin to build 8 Basic Soft Skills:
The second stop on the Soft Skills Middle journey is the WORLD OF WORK. Students will get prepped for the world of work by virtually exploring the 16 Career Clusters in order to introduce them to the great big world of career opportunities that await them in the future. Along the way, students will take part in Self-Assessment and Career Awareness activities designed to help them begin to see in which career directions their strengths, interests and values may one day lead them.
The third and final stop on the Soft Skills Middle journey is GO and Make a Plan. Designed to help students make a successful transition to high school, college, and the world beyond, students will work with their parents, teachers, and our Soft Skills Middle Coach to put together a flexible going forward e-plan that sets future (modifiable) goals and ways to successfully achieve them.
