Preparing your students for their futures requires more than teaching academic and technical skills.

Students need additional foundational skills and JAKAPA can help.

Soft skills impact your students’ chances of success in work, school and life.
  • 73% of employers struggle to find recent graduates with sufficient soft skills.
  • 8 of the 10 top skills for 2025 are soft skills.
  • Soft skills get overlooked because most teachers report they do not know how to teach them and don’t have time for another curriculum.
The Challenge

A lack of soft skills in your staff prevents success for your students.

Soft skills are critical for shared leadership and strong, effective teams.

How many great ideas fail to be implemented effectively because staff complies rather than commits to change?

How many resources do you allocate to create time and space for collaboration and professional learning that fails to yield a strong return on investment?

How many initiatives and approaches have you tried unsuccessfully to improve your school culture so it fosters positivity and opportunity for all?

The Solution

Address the foundational issue that prevents productivity and engagement - a lack of soft skills

JAKAPA is a comprehensive, customizable web-based solution and Skills Tracker App that builds skill awareness, alignment and engagement through self and peer assessments and a personalized learning and support.

Soft skills are the professional skills that matter. They are linked to job retention, satisfaction and effectiveness. Investing in your staff’s soft skills will amplify the impact of your intiatives and increase employee engagement. JAKAPA measures up to 32 skills in five domains. These skills are the foundation for effective planning and organizing instruction, setting up an equitable classroom climate, establishing strong relationships with students and families, and effectively collaborating with teams.
