Workplace Excellence - Essential Skills for Today's Workforce

KACC students have been engaged in the Workplace Excellence Series, earning badges – not traditional ones – electronic badges they can add to their electronic portfolio as well as their LinkedIn™, Facebook™ and Twitter™ Profiles.  There are ten modules – each designed to help students understand and be able to deliver what an employer really needs in today’s workforce.  Each module teaches from the employer’s perspective, allowing students to develop practical skills in addition to their technical and academic skills.

Kankakee Area Career Center (KACC) initially teamed up with Kankakee Community College (KCC) and Dr. Kristine M. Condon, Professor and Program Coordinator, to bring the Workplace Excellence Series into every curriculum offering. Dr. Condon provided training of our faculty. Once trained, faculty began working with students on the ten modules; with five being offered each school year.

 

KACC Principal, Tim Guerin, has continued what Dr. Condon started, working with teachers on how best to deliver this amazing program - once again - giving KACC students a more diverse and business-centered education experience.  

 

The ten-module series includes:

 

  • ADAPTability
  • COMMUNICATIONability
  • DEPENDability
  • PRESENTability
  • REASONability
  • RESPECTability
  • SUITability
  • TRANSITIONability
  • WORKability
  • WRITEability

 

Following successful completion of each module, students are issued an electronic badge to showcase their newest credential.  These electronic badges are issued through Acclaim, a product of Credly, “The world’s leading digital credential service provider.” These badges not only confirm the credential, they also communicate the “why” employers should find it an added value for any employee.

 

KACC Director, Matt Kelley, is frequently heard talking about the importance of a KACC education – regardless whether a student continues in the specific career field taught.  His belief – which is proven repeatedly by success of our alumni, is that the skills learned at KACC are transferable between any career fields. 

 

Academic – Technical – and Workplace Excellence skill development makes for a well-educated and well-rounded employee.  This is one more avenue the Kankakee Area Career Center takes to Preparing Students for Tomorrow.
