Student Employability Skills
5 C’s / EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS
In addition to providing academic instruction, preparing students to be college and career-ready is a priority for Calhoun City Schools. Local business, industry partners, and post-secondary schools have indicated the importance of strong power skills, also called soft skills, employability skills, work ethic, or 21st Century skills, to the success of their employees and businesses. Employability Skills should be included as an explicit and integral part of classroom instruction, embedded in class activities. In response to this, Calhoun City Schools will implement 5 C’s instruction in PreK-12th grade. The 5 C’s for Success include: Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking, and Community.
