Career Preparation I will provide opportunities for students to participate in a learning experience that
combines classroom instruction with paid business and industry employment experiences and supports
strong partnerships among school, business, and community stakeholders. The goal is to prepare students
with a variety of skills for a fast-changing workplace. Students are taught employability skills, which include
job skills applicable to their training station, job interview techniques, communication skills, financial and
budget activities, interpersonal relations, and portfolio development. Students MUST be employed AND stay
employed at least 10 hours a week to enroll in this course. Students will receive ONE additional work release
period for this course provided they continue to meet the 10 hour a week employability requirement.
