Readiness Redefined

The 21st century is already producing the most remarkable and unpredictable leaps in human history. Readiness in tomorrow's economy requires skill and knowledge for the jobs that lie ahead. To be competitive in the global market, America must prepare college and career ready learners and classrooms that empower our workforce with the relevant skills and knowledge to build a smarter, more sustainable economy.

Developing a 21st Century Learner and Workforce

WIN Learning helps ensure all learners have the skills to be career and college ready. WIN's Personalized Career Readiness System helps students understand and prepare for the realities of the workplace through personalized learning and relevant career-driven education.

We propose that redefining readiness starts with education, business and community working in partnership by crafting an inclusive conversation which continually expands the definition of readiness to include a true Educonomy or connection between education and labor market demand.

The Challenge

Only 24% of American high school graduates are scoring proficiently on college level math and reading. 3.2 million skilled jobs remain unfilled in the U.S. due to lack of qualified applicants. A survey of 2,000 businesses found 40% had positions open at least six months because they could not find candidates who had the required soft skills. A second survey found roughly half of all college graduates applying for open jobs did not have the necessary applied skills to be hired; and 39% of high-school graduates wanting to go directly to work were unprepared for entry-level positions.

Award-Winning Career Readiness System

WIN’s award-winning Career Readiness System includes a series of fully aligned Web-based programs that guide the learner through career exploration and planning process. WIN assesses the foundational and college readiness skills and provides online education and training for the applied skills necessary in the world of work.

"When am I ever going to use this?"

In an EDUCONOMY model, the goal is to pinpoint where education and the economy intersect—where supply, demand and career pathways are the drivers for education and training, people and talent, occupation and jobs and business and industry. For educators, job seekers and businesses, WIN Learning provides the tools to analyze labor market demands assess learners on foundational skills, soft skills and the education and training. WIN’s Career Readiness System and resources guide learners through the process for career exploration and the skills necessary to achieve success.

Our products are designed to deliver real labor market to the instructors' fingertips and provide a relevant career readiness framework for learners of all kinds. Through WIN's Career-Driven Education model, we accelerate understanding and retention and lower the need for remediation— improving the odds of college graduation or effective job placement.

A System for Success

WIN's standards-aligned Career Readiness System shows students the connection between what's happening in the classroom and in their futures. When students have a personalized career plan based on their interests, they are more engaged in school and more clearly see the relevance of their education. The result is higher academic achievement, greater commitment to classroom activities, increased motivation to stay in school, and true readiness for success following graduation.

A career pathway is a realization of one's true potential. It is the answer to the proverbial question, “When will I ever need to know this?” WIN Learning connects the rigor and relevance of education to each learner's career interest.
