Work-Based Learning Students Receive Department of Labor GeorgiaBest Recognition

South Cobb High School Work-Based Learning students show off their GeorgiaBest Department of Labor certificates. More than 60 South Cobb High School students were awarded the certificates.

More than 60 South Cobb High School Work-Based Learning students were awarded the GeorgiaBest Department of Labor certificate for their soft skill development work in their work-based learning class.

Through the Department of Labor program, students gain an awareness of the value of the goal-setting, time-management, problem-solving, and self-management skills to better prepare them for the workforce.

Under the supervision of the SCHS work-based learning coordinator, Lisa Gipson, the students worked to meet the criteria to receive a certificate. A total of 10 criteria have been established by the DOL to determine if a student meets the requirements for the GeorgiaBest Soft Skills Certificate.  The criteria include discipline and character, attendance and punctuality, teamwork, and work habits. The certificate serves as proof to employers that students have displayed strong work habits and are ready for the workforce.

Congratulations SCHS WBL students!
