SkillUp Lancaster - Penn Manor

All Penn Manor freshmen will complete online courses toward earning a Comet Credential, a certificate indicating they have completed training on a series of essential interpersonal skills and practices to help them succeed in life.  This is the first program of its kind targeting an entire high school class – more than 400 students – in Pennsylvania. Students will complete the courses in addition to their regular academic work.

The Comet Credential program is a collaborative effort involving local business representatives, the Lancaster County Workforce Development Board and PA CareerLink® of Lancaster County, a partner of the American Job Center network.  This new initiative is designed to help student develop the “soft skills” employers say are needed to succeed in the modern workforce. The courses include such topics as “Time Management: Quit Making Excuses and Make Time Instead,” “Making and Carrying Out Tough Decisions,” “Communication Methods that Make Sense – and Make Your Point” and “Difficult People: Strategies to Keep Everyone Working Together.” The training won’t just help students who intend to join the workforce after graduation, but will give all students the tools to more successfully navigate their four years of high school and transition to college, training or a job.

Penn Manor is participating in the SkillUp Lancaster initiative. SkillUp Lancaster is designed to help all Lancaster County residents update their skills for better job opportunities at no cost.
