Adult learners need more than just basic skills such as reading and writing to be successful as they transition to the workforce or college. In fact, they also need more than just technical skills that are specific to the job to be good employees. Soft skills are those skills that are not confined to one job but can benefit you in any workplace.

Soft skills are embedded into adult literacy instruction at all levels, through modeling, direct instruction and targeted feedback. They will help you to be a better learner, and a stronger employee!

Today’s employers are seeking more than just technical knowledge of the job, they are looking for employees who are willing to work as team players, have strong communication skills, work ethics, problem solving skills, leadership and a positive attitude. SoftSkillsPro is a computer based course that prepares participants to enter the workforce with essential skills needed for employment. It is delivered in three parts, Get Ready, Get Prepped, and Go!

Here's how it works:
