Career & Technical Education Standards
Workforce Ready Career Pathway Curriculum

Provided by the Georgia Department of Education & Georgia Employability Skills Task Force

Georgia Workforce Ready Career Pathway

​Community On Demand serves as a resource for the NEW Georgia Workforce Ready Career Pathway curriculum and helps learners of all ages meet Standard #1 of all Georgia Career & Technical Education (CTE) Career Cluster curricula.

 

The curriculum offers three courses that focus strictly on the development of employability skills:

In this course students acquire employability skills that ease their transition to the workforce. Specific skills within the course provide additional opportunities for students to sharpen academic and employability skills, financial literacy, multiple forms of communication strategies, mastery of technology and specific-related tools, workplace safety, and self-advocacy approaches. Students will also use various opportunities and settings to demonstrate knowledge and application of employability skills acquired in prior courses. Lastly, students will have heavy exposure to workplace and community experiences, complete and present career portfolios, complete a community/school service project, hone leadership skills, and earn business and industry recognized credentials.

 

These essential skills and concepts need to be taught in an individualized basis to meet the academic and workplace skill-needs of students. Through participation in this career pathway, students will learn about the world of work by achieving academic challenges, participating in project-based learning activities, workplace enrichment experiences, and participation in a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) that provides inner-personal and group-related leadership skills.
