One solution. Infinite Possibilities.
When it comes to workforce readiness, today's employers are seeking more than technical ability; they are looking for real team players who possess strong communication and problem-solving skills, and who demonstrate resourcefulness and leadership in the workplace.
While schools across the country understand the benefits of blending these key 21st Century employability skills into their curriculum, administrators often find it difficult to find both the time and the tools to teach and assess these important soft skills.

Career Badges = Career Ready
The Career PREP Portfolio is a summary of the skills, strengths, and abilities students have mastered in the CLE course. Badges include:
- Self - Assessment

Once student's Career PREP Portfolios are complete, it's time to put all the planning into action.

Upon completion of both the Career & Life Essentials course and Career PREP, students who successfully demonstrate their acquired knowledge in a documented work-based internship will earn a Soft Skills Pro Certificate.

When I started this course I did not know what to expect.
I didn't imagine how it would change my perception and behavior towards high school life as well as in my personal life.
It made me change my attitude with my school tasks, how to have more discipline and commitment.
Also my ability to listen and observe has been improved everyday.

From this course I have learned many important skills for my life. I developed all these skills and it helped me in my daily life
as being positive or respecting others ideas. All this knowledge I can put into practice with my family, friends, work, school, etc.
Also, this course is very important because it helps you to improve the basic skills that you already know but sometimes we do not do them
because we forget. I’m grateful because now all this tips will help me in a future and I will know how to manage problems.
The most important thing I have learned is to be positive and respect others cultures or opinion.

they depend on our choices and the attitude, not only the aptitude, we have. The skills in my toolbox I am going to continue to work on in order to be the best
student, co-worker, friend and person I can be are cooperation, respect, productivity, initiative and honesty.

Since the beginning until my final module, in each of the questions that I've answered, videos that I've watched,
thoughts that I've read... they make me feel and think that finally, inches by inches, I'm getting to know myself more and also about life.
Indeed, I'm so glad to be part as a student here in CLE.

First off I would like to say thank you to the wonderful people who spent their time creating this program
as it has really been useful in my life. During my time doing this program I have learned many skills which I have been using in my everyday life.
Thankfully this module was about communication skills as that is one of the things that I struggle with. All my life I have been an introvert
and I feel that after completing the seminar that I have more confidence talking to other people. So I would just like to say thank you.
Jairo G. - United States
I enjoyed everything about this module. I feel like I got back on track and in touch with my inner self.

I would recommend this course for every High School. It's like a Journal!
