Jobs are becoming harder to keep in America. For teens, jobs were hard to get before the current economic crisis. Studies indicate most employers do not wish to hire high school students because, for the most part, they lack the basic skills that are required of a good employee, the "soft skills" that make employees valuable to a company.
At RCB Medical Arts Academy, we believe that great employees make great students and vice-versa! Based on what business and industry have demanded, "soft-skills," we have developed a system of educating students based on workplace expectations, and eight skill-set areas for which students are evaluated as “employees.”
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
Please take a look at our Employability Rubric to see our expectations. This rubric was not designed by educators, but the marks of a good employee were developed by members of the business community.
Young people "employed" as students at RCB receive an employee evaluation every three weeks to measure their improvement in skills that will make them assets in any workplace.
If students do something in class that would not fly in the workplace they receive a receprimand or a Notice of Termination. When a student is removed from class, here is the Notice he or she will receive, based on the rubric above:
