Workplace Readiness Skills Updated for 2019–20

The Virginia Department of Education, with research assistance from the Weldon Cooper Center, has revised the Workplace Readiness Skills for the Commonwealth. Two new skills—initiative and self-direction, and information literacy—have been added, and telecommunications has been merged with information technology. The result is 22 skills among three domains: Personal Qualities and Abilities, Interpersonal Skills, and Professional Competencies. You will find these updated skills in all 2019–2020 course competency lists, and our WRS instructional resources will be revised this summer.

Are You Ready for Career Success?

The Virginia Department of Education has transformed the popular R U Ready? magazine into a collection of videos for 2018. Career Success Stars features students in the 16 Career Clusters who completed CTE courses in Virginia high schools and have found successful careers in their fields. Find links to the videos here.
