NCWD/Youth Releases Guide on Competencies for Postsecondary Education and Career Success

August 26, 2016

Many students, including students with disabilities, enter postsecondary education lacking the personal skills, knowledge, and attributes they need to achieve their education and career goals. To increase student retention, completion, and career readiness, postsecondary institutions need to include youth development and leadership opportunities that help students build personal competencies. The new guide by NCWD/Youth, Personal Competencies for College and Career Success, provides suggestions about various strategies postsecondary professionals can use to assist all students, including those with disabilities, in developing personal competencies that will increase their chances of success.
