Upon graduation from high school, many students find themselves on the road of life with little direction, their career path developments limited by their lack of exposure to a good solid career education program. In today's world of work, students need specific skills that many business leaders and community members feel are lacking in today's graduating students. The acquisition of these skills -- the employability skills -- and the teaching of these skills, is the subject of this study which will focus on junior high and middle schools. This project will highlight why it is necessary for schools to teach employability skills and examine closely the skills needed in today's job market. The study will also look at specific employability skill projects being carried out in different schools around the country, including a look at the projects and the evaluation of those projects in current use in Clive School, Clive, Alberta.
