To be competitive in an increasingly global economy, students entering the workforce will need more than just academic knowledge to be successful. Employability skills are becoming a critical component of making students truly ready for success in the workplace.

The College and Career Readiness and Success Center (CCRS Center), the Center on Great Teachers and Leaders (GTL Center), RTI International, and the American Youth Policy Forum hosted a webinar showcasing a new, interactive learning module, Integrating Employability Skills: A Framework for All Educators. Building off of the Employability Skills Framework, the module prepares all educators to integrate employability skills into their everyday instruction. During this webinar, presenters discussed the value and uses of the employability skills framework and complimentary module including its development, pilot efforts, and potential uses.
