The Ossie Ware Mitchell Middle School Career / Technical Education Department is proud to share with you our theme for Career / Technical Education Month is "Developing Soft Skills for Future Employment!" Students will introduced to what employers are looking for in entry-level workers. We will expose our students to the skills that are necessary to obtain and retain their jobs in the workplace. Students will cover topics such as Communication skills, Teamwork and Collaboration, Adaptability, Problem Solving, Critical Observation and Conflict Resolution.
I will be teaching these critical soft skills in addition to our course of study. The good news is that, like any other skill, soft skills can be learned. The better news is by developing these skills it will aid our students in the workplace but it will give them a leg up on a new job or a promotion. These skills also have obvious applications in all areas of a person's life, both professional and personal. THESE SKILLS BUILD CHARACTER!
