VTS started re- search with the goal of producing a curriculum that meets the needs of schools, adult work facilities, and the independent work place. Soft skills are a concern for employers.
Some important soft skills to emphasize are problem-solving, the ability to s tart work independently, to stay on task, to +nish properly, to understand work rewards, to accept change, and to restart indepen - dently. The VTS TM Transition Curriculum provides the tools to challenge and improve these skills. VTS TM Transition Cur- riculum is a great way for teachers and staff to teach students hands-on.
The ability to change the schedule, manipulate the work and reward ... more. less.
good work gives the teachers and staff the ability to challenge. The VTS TM Daily Schedule Board is the center piece of the curriculum. This allows students to see the work as- signed for the day so they can learn to start work independently.<br><br> After completion and grading of their work, the student con- tinues with the next scheduled work task. We have the ability to customize each curriculum we sell with the school 9s name, adding identi+ers to names, and special order cards. 2 Features & Bene)ts VTS TM Transition Curriculum - provides a system to challenge and improve soft skills and understand work rewards.<br><br> And it 9s simple to use for the educators and staff of schools and adult facilities.
