At the foundation of employability skills is the social interaction of individuals in a work environment. For this reason, the SkillBott curriculum utilizes group based experiential lessons that are rooted in practical, real life scenarios, rather than attempting to teach these interactive social skills with extensive topical reading and multiple choice testing. It includes multiple modalities of learning and has activities for all types of learners. In addition, it is designed for teachers who have limited preparation time and who may not be familiar with the subject matters. We offer six Courses, 67 lessions and over 160 hours of instruction.

The SkillBott curriculum consists of 67 lessons organized into 6 subject areas. Each lesson averages 2 hours in length but they can be modified by the teacher to suit any time constraints, areas of interest or skill development or student needs. All lessons include multiple choice quizzes, writing assignments, a project or activity, a self-assessment and situational judgment questions. Lessons are aligned to the Common Core Standards.
