research based Florida Works Career Building Skills Program
was developed with extensive input from Florida businesses
through a grant from the Florida Department of Education
Division of Workforce Development. Written at a 4th-6th
grade reading level it is designed to meet the employment
training needs of adults and youth with low literacy skills
and limited work experience. There are two components of
Florida Works: Job Readiness and Job Retention.
There is no
cost for Florida Works materials, which can be downloaded
from this site, ordered from FHRD on a cost recovery basis,
or obtained on a CD Rom. Training is recommended which prepares
instructors to use the cooperative learning strategies embedded
in the activities, master problem posing techniques and
effectively assess participant's progress.
