Perkins V Resources

As you prepare to meet the tenets of Perkins V, there are many ways we can help.

  • Learning Standards: High-quality programs start with research-backed standards. MBA Research provides free standards and performance indicators for your use in delivering on your brand. These standards are unique in education: They are based on business practitioner research that utilizes focus groups, interviews, business association standards, and certification criteria. They provide up-to-date information on the skill sets being used every day in the workplace. Learn more.

  • Employability Skills: Perkins V calls out "employability skills" as a necessity for students. We can help. Thanks to a grant from the Daniels Fund, we have over 70 lesson modules available at no cost. Topics include teamwork, communications, ethics, and many more. Four additional modules (taking initiative, employee actions, personal appearance, and careers in business) are also available. Using project-based learning in your classroom is an opportunity for students to practice employability skills as they work in teams. New to that pedagogy? We recommend resources from org (many are free on their website).

    And, be sure to consider the High School of Business™ program, through which students learn and experience communications, teamwork, how to synthesize information, responsibility, and a long list of 21st Century Skills as they work in teams to complete 20+ real business projects throughout the program. This chart explains how the program aligns with Perkins V.
