Integrating Employability Skills: A Framework for All Educators

The GTL Center, in partnership with the College and Career Readiness and Success Center, developed this Professional Learning Module (PLM) to support regional comprehensive centers, state educational agency staff, and state regional centers in building their knowledge and capacity to integrate and prioritize employability skills at the state and local levels.

This interactive module – a collection PowerPoint slides, handouts, sample agenda, and a facilitator’s guide – provides the following activities:

  • Introduces participants to the Employability Skills Framework and explains why it is important for all students
  • Connects the Employability Skills Framework with other education initiatives
  • Provides strategies to prioritize employability skills at the state, employer, district, and individual teacher levels
  • Shows participants how to train teachers to integrate employability skills into lesson plans
