ACES (Academic, Career & Employability Skills) The goal of ACES is to ensure that Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs are able to provide effective contextualized instruction integrating post-secondary education and training readiness, employability skills, and career readiness at all levels. The Transitions Integration Framework (TIF) is the cornerstone of ACES. It was designed to provide ABE programs and instructors with guidance on the effective integration of transitions skills into instruction at all levels of ABE. The TIF defines the academic, career, and employability skills essential for adult learners to successfully transition to post-secondary education, career training, the workplace, and community involvement. The ACES Resource Library contains tools to help ABE practitioners incorporate the TIF skills into lessons and instructional settings and provides materials that can be used directly with adult learners.

Career Gates: Soft Skills highlights the skills employees need to be successful. These include communication, eye-contact, listening, teamwork, positive attitude, proper handshake, professional appearance and respect. Soft skills are the abilities to get along with others, resolve conflict and work together towards a common goal. These skills can be a strong indicator in why you get a job or why you don't get a job. A desire to learn and an ability to learn, you can advance. Many companies will hire people that have soft skills over someone with more technical skills because technical skills can be taught more easily.

Adult ESL learners may not know the American measurement system. The United States is one of only five countries still using Fahrenheit to measure temperatures (see list below). Simplifying the conversion can help our learners make sense of local temperatures. The method below is “a reasonable approximation”, not an exact calculation.
