Preparing for Work, developed by Equipped for the Future (EFF) at the
Center for Literacy Studies, University of Tennessee, is a skills-based
course designed for implementation in organizations and workforce
agencies involved in preparing clients and students for work. EFF
defined four categories of skills that support effective performance in
the workplace, home and community:

1. Communication Skills

2. Decision-Making Skills

3. Interpersonal Skills

4. Lifelong Learning Skills

The curriculum consists of six modules that integrate a variety of EFF
skills and the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills

* Orientation: Overview of the World of Work

* Work with Others with Integrity

* Solve Problems

* Allocate Resources

* Acquire and Use Information

* Use Systems

The interactive learning activities within the course are designed to
model authentic, work related experiences and tasks, and provide
opportunities for learners to apply the skills being taught - with an
added focus on how skills transfer from one situation or context to
another as individuals advance along a career path.

EFF standards-based instruction is an approach to teaching and learning
focused on broadly accepted expectations of what students should know
and be able to do - the 16 EFF Content Standards. For more information
