​PA Career Ready Skills

The Pennsylvania Career Ready Skills were crafted to address the social and emotional skills students need to empower themselves to successfully navigate relationships within their family, school, college, and/or career as well as within the global marketplace. Specifically, these skills include self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. These interpersonal skills are a key component in the development of young people, who are articulate team players, responsible and goal oriented.  In order that all students achieve to their potential, families, schools and the community must remove both academic and non-academic barriers to learning for optimal success.
