Work-based learningWhile educators and employers both agree that possessing a strong set of soft skills is the key to career and life readiness, whether or not a student truly is ready can be difficult to measure. That’s why Soft Skills High is more than just an online course. Soft Skill High students must show that they can apply the skills they have learned online to real life via real world competency situations.
Soft Skills High provides the school and students with CLE work-based learning competencies that align with the Career and Life Essentials coursework. “Learning by applying” is the foundation of work-based learning. Students must be provided the opportunity to participate in experiences that assess the CLE competencies. Work-based learning at the workplace, in the community, and through school-based experiences will need to occur under the guidance of a school-based and community or workplace mentor.

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.

In addition, it will help me to achieve my goals in life by being ready not just on the outside, but also on the inside. I learned a lot and I will apply and try my best

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.
