Employability Skills Resource Toolkit

the cover of the employability book

As part of the North Carolina Community College System’s Code Green Super Curriculum Improvement Project (CIP), more than 200 faculty members from across the state were engaged in curriculum review and revision. As part of their work, the committee discussed the importance of teaching employability skills, identifying eight competencies as a priority for integration across the curriculum. They include:

  1. Interpersonal Skills and Teamwork
  2. Communications
  3. Integrity and Professionalism
  4. Problem Solving and Decision Making
  5. Initiative and Dependability
  6. Information Processing
  7. Adaptability and Lifelong Learning
  8. Entrepreneurship

To support instructors as they seek to enhance how their courses address the eight competencies, NC-NET developed a Resource Toolkit comprised of eight modules. Each module contains instructional materials including activities, student handouts, assessment rubrics, and annotated presentation slides.
