Upskill Village Offers Micro-Credentialing Courses

The School District of Lee County is excited to announce the launch of Upskill Village to provide adult learners with micro-credentials to help them in the workforce. Upskill Village teaches behaviors and non-technical skills that are used to interact with colleagues and clients. Students earn micro-credentials that can be placed on a resume, LinkedIn account or email signature to advertise their soft skills.

Available through the Adult and Career Education Department, Upskill Village is offering eight micro-credentials. There is no cost to attend. The soft skills being taught are:

  • Oral Communication
  • Empathy
  • Critical Thinking
  • Resilience
  • Intercultural Fluency
  • Collaboration
  • Creative Problem Solving
  • Initiative

Any Lee County resident 16 or older can register for the free micro-credential courses. Classes are on Monday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. More information and the link to register is on the District Website under Adult and Career Education.
