PA Career Ready Skills Toolkit​

Pennsylvania’s economic future depends on having a well-educated and skilled workforce that is prepared to meet both the current and projected demands of a global, knowledge-based, 21st century economy. It is imperative that Pennsylvania students, at all educational levels, have access to high-quality academic and technical education. Also important is the opportunity for students to identify aptitudes, develop employability skills, and explore career pathways that align with their post-graduation career plans. These priorities reinforce Pennsylvania’s commitment to ensure that all residents of the commonwealth benefit from schools that teach, jobs that pay, and government that works.  This commitment positions departments serving Pennsylvania’s children and youth to work together to prepare all high school graduates to hold the academic, technical, and employability skills necessary to be college and career ready.
