Core Abilities

Core Abilities

WDT’s core abilities are institutional outcomes that are essential workplace skills that cut across occupational titles. They are broad and common skills, abilities, and attitudes that students in all WDT programs must possess to be prepared for the workforce and lifelong learning.

Core abilities are different from program and course outcomes and competencies in that they are not program- or course-specific. Instead, they are broader skills that run through programs, courses, lessons, and support services.

The following are the WDT Core Abilities:

  • Life Skills
  • Analytical Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Technology Skills
  • Teamwork Techniques
  • Social Values
  • Employability
