Employability Skills for Career Readiness
Are the Nevada twenty-one state standards for Workplace Readiness Skills adopted from the state of Virginia.
The standards were developed and now implemented in response to the growing decline of workers demonstrating proficiency in real world “soft skills.” A common phrase with employers in all current job markets is “Workers get hired for their technical skill and fired for their lack of soft skills.” In an effort to get all students ready by exit along with passing a test in their CTE content area, as of April 2013 all high school students in Nevada must in addition to completing a Career & Technical Education program of study assessment pass a test on the twenty-one ESCR standards to receive a state certificate of attainment. This site was created to provide a definition of the standards and resources for teachers and students.
