Employability Skills

The six employability skills that are included on the first page of the Work-Based Learning Plan reflect the lifelong career skills that are important in every career setting.  These skills were identified in collaboration with Massachusetts employers, workforce development professionals and educators.  The skills are aligned with the Career Vocational Technical Education (CVTE) Employability Frameworks and with national research about workplace skills.   Each of these skills is important across many settings, in classroom, community, personal and career settings, and across a wide spectrum of career areas.
