Employability and Soft Skills for the 21st Century
Socially Savvy worked with the CTE Director and business and entrepreneurship teachers at Portsmouth High School to influence student career and college readiness. The program started with a professional development which provided a train-to-teach opportunity. The program has since been adopted as part of the annual business curriculum to teach students social communication skills and personal branding and to influence employability results.
"Today, responsible and professional use of social media is integral to success. Our partnership with Socially Savvy improves the employability and soft skills provided through our CTE programs and enables our students to better compete in today's connected economy."
- Diane Canada, Director, Career Technical Education, Portsmouth High School
Socially Savvy delivered our social business and personal brand building train-to-teach program with the technical center's CTE instructors. The program will be leveraged to assist students embrace digital citizenship best practices and professionally represent their individual brands to influence employability.
"Socially Savvy leaned in to support the accounting and machine tool programming instructors at the Sugar River Valley Regional Technical Center. The social business and personal brand building program increases our students' likelihood of attaining meaningful employment or continuing their education after graduation and enables students to represent themselves in the best possible way they can in digital channels. This will provide them with a competitive advantage when seeking employment or applying to post-secondary education."
-Joel Schneid, CTE Director, Sugar River Valley Regional Technical Center
Socially Savvy worked with Boston Public Schools (BPS) to pilot our social business and personal brand building program during the 2017/18 academic year with the CTE program. We delivered our train-to-teach program with personnel from the headquarters office in 2017 and The English High School (EHS) - America's Oldest Public High School - in Q12018.
During the 2018/19 school year, we will be collaborating with BPS to begin to roll our our social business and personal brand building program across CTE programs at district high schools with EHS instructors leading the district ambassador program.
