What Skills Will Students Need to Sustain Employment Once They Obtain It?
It’s important that we, as educators, make the expectations in the workplace explicit so students can identify what behaviors will make them successful and what behaviors may be perceived as problematic in some settings.
Practice Workplace Behaviors in Mock Workplaces
Digitability’s Workplace Behavior curriculum delivers real-world employment skills training. Through each of the step-by-step, differentiated lesson plans, students identify the impact of specific workplace behaviors and then practice these behaviors in each classroom Work Simulation.
For example, students learn how to increase their ability to collaborate, while also developing strategies to avoid pitfalls like arguing. As they work through each module, students become more aware of their behavior and communication needs and later, develop a personal self-advocacy plan for their future workplace.
