Workplace readiness skills are considered essential and are required in all Virginia schools. Workplace readiness skills may be found in the first 21 competencies of every state CTE course. Each competency link opens a variety of related curriculum and instructional resources. All course competencies are managed through Virginia’s Educational Resources System Online (VERSO). The skills are not intended to be taught in isolation as separate tasks. Most of the skills will be evident through project-based learning and simulated instruction.
