WIN Learning and Highlands Economic Partnership Offer Career Readiness Training to Adults in Central Tennessee

Kingston, Tennessee – 2/17/2023 – WIN Learning, a national leading developer of career readiness solutions, is collaborating with Highlands Economic Partnership, a group of government agencies, chambers of commerce, and business leaders dedicated to providing workforce education and development programs to adults in the Highlands region of Tennessee. WIN is partnering with the Highlands Training Center to implement the Aim High certification program, a two-month career readiness training program for adults receiving government assistance who are re-entering the workforce.

In the first month of the Aim High program, participants will use WIN Learning’s My Work Ready career exploration tool to complete the Essential Soft Skills and Work Ready assessments and evaluate their current skill levels. Participants can then explore career paths that match their abilities, experience, and interests and learn more about the training required for those careers. Participants can also use the Essential Soft Skills Courseware and Work Ready Courseware to improve their skills in areas where they may be lacking. When they complete the first month of the Aim High program, participants receive a personalized career plan and a certificate showing their achievement.

The second month of the program places participants in work experiences with employers in the Highlands Economic Partnership. Participants gain valuable hands-on work experience and learn more about their chosen career. The ultimate goal of the Aim High certification program is to strengthen the local workforce by providing participants with lasting skills and confidence that will support long-term employment.

“Utilizing WIN Learning's career readiness resources enables us to continue educating job seekers and empowering them to achieve success,” said Ryan Barnhart, Executive Director. “We are excited to partner with WIN to further our mission of improving the quality of life for people in our communities.”
