Use this Community of Practice webinar to create a district graduate profile which incorporates social and emotional learning and employability skills to best prepare your students for their next steps in life.
Employers share that employability skills are often the most essential skills that an employee can possess (or lack). Find out how your district can address employability skills through the adoption of Social Emotional Learning competencies.
Students today face a multitude of factors affecting their personal and academic wellbeing. Poverty and homelessness, food insecurity, substance and alcohol abuse, social pressure and anxiety and depression all impact a student’s ability to learn, not to mention the acute struggles that have arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbating the pressures students feel on a daily basis. Widely viewed as an integral part of the American education system, social-emotional learning (SEL) helps young people navigate the challenges and stressors of life in and outside the classroom.
The purpose of this brief is to introduce a developmental framework for states working to systemically integrate evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) with career and workforce development efforts.

This case study is one of three describing the development and implementation of social and emotional learning (SEL) integrated with career and workforce development efforts in Delaware, Kansas, and Wisconsin.
Wisconsin’s journey is an exemplar for other states looking to do this work. While every state has its own context, Wisconsin’s emphasis on developing inter-agency and cross-sector collaboration, leveraging strong foundations of existing career and workforce development efforts, and supporting practical implementation at the district level are key elements of systemic integration of SEL.
