Employability Skills Framework
It can require many skills to be college and career ready, including academic knowledge, technical expertise, and a set of general abilities called employability skills. This framework from the U.S. Department of Education provides information and tools to inform the instruction and assessment of employability skills. The framework cuts across both the workforce and education sectors and is comprised of nine skills, organized in three broad categories: applied knowledge, effective relationships, and workplace skills.
