Programs to Develop Personal and Social Capabilities
Personal and social capabilities — also known as “soft” skills — are critical to career success. Employers want, and expect, these skills. To meet this demand, we developed the Personal and Social Capabilities (PSC) Framework.
Created through an extensive review of existing 21st century skills frameworks, social skills, research related to employability skills, and labor market data, PSC identifies six common categories of “soft” skills people need to succeed in any employment setting.
We have two online programs which can be used to support your higher education students to identify, develop and showcase these vital skills.
All the topics, including critical thinking, diversity, workplace etiquette, formal and informal communication, business writing (even where to put capital letters!) are very insightful and educating.

Our Student Success Program advances students’ knowledge and builds critical skills for ongoing personal and professional development. Rich analytics enable educators to baseline students’ strengths and weaknesses and measure their readiness for college and career success.
Our Career Success Program provides career development tools to help prepare students for today’s workplace. When it comes to preparing for their future, students often don’t know where to start. Get them on the right path with Pearson Career Success.
Our internship employers are very impressed with students that have taken the Career Success program. They can see it in the students’ attitude, the high standard of their CVs, their level of communication and how they conduct themselves.
