Momentum Builds for Work Ready Program
Clay County is working to become one of the first in the area to qualify for the Certified Work Ready Communities program—an effort of interest to employers, current and future employees and all residents interested in economic development and employment.
The program measures basic work skills of would-be employees. Created by the nationally recognized ACT testing organization, the program offers Career Readiness Certificates that help qualify real-world job skills in a consistent, “apples to apples” measurement. Workers gain the advantage of a verified proof of their basic work skills, while employers gain a consistent and comparable tool for evaluating job applicants.
National Career Readiness Certificates complement traditional credentials such as high school diplomas, community college degrees, and certificates of technical proficiency. Academic credentials mark the fulfillment of an individual’s classroom learning experiences. The NCRC relies on standardized assessments and confirms an individual’s competence in a specific set of workplace skills.
