It’s critical for educational programs to support a national workforce that meets the needs of businesses, communities, families and individuals. KET’s Workplace Essential Skills can serve as a useful tool to meet these needs by offering adult learners academic content contextualized to high demand careers as well as instruction on soft skills.
The Workplace courses are organized into seven high demand career fields that teach contextualized and targeted language and math skills. Additionally, a soft skills course addresses professional behavior and communication, working with a team and critical thinking. Content in Workplace Essential Skills, delivered at grade levels 7-9, is accessible to a wide spectrum of adult learners and is aligned with National Career Readiness Certification (NCRC) standards, GED Assessment targets and College and Career Readiness standards.
