Personal Success Skills Digital Library
NCTN is developing a Personal Success Skills Digital Library to advance adults’ college and career readiness and college success. Funded by ECMC Foundation, the library will feature electronic and print materials and technology-enabled tools that support the development and application of personal success skills. NCTN uses the term “personal success” skills to refer to a set of critical and creative thinking, problem-solving, systems thinking, communication, self-efficacy, self-regulation, inter- and intrapersonal skills. These skills are also referred to as employability, workforce preparation, 21st century, lifelong learning, and human skills.
The primary target audiences are adult education, postsecondary, workforce development, and occupational training providers as well as adult career pathways and college transition/on-ramp program providers. The purpose is to showcase ready-to-use resources for instruction, assessment, coaching/advising that are grounded in research and practice,
Resources are selected, presented, and annotated according to the evidence of effectiveness; accessibility and affordability; usability for target audiences; and alignment with specific program designs and instructional models.
