Partnering to Improve Students' Lives Forever 

Kingston, Tennessee – 2/7/2023 – WIN Learning, a national leading developer of career readiness solutions, is partnering with Jobs for America’s Graduates Tennessee (JAGTN), a non-profit organization helping students graduate, to strengthen the future workforce with soft skills training. WIN Learning is proud to partner with JAGTN to offer students in the 2022-2023 school year the opportunity to earn the National Work Readiness Essential Soft Skills Credential. JAGTN is classified as a College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) course through Tennessee Department of Education. 

Students will work through the WIN Essential Soft Skills courseware, which is comprised of blended online and offline solutions helping learners develop and demonstrate attitudinal and behavioral skills essential to success in the workplace and school. The WIN Essential Soft Skills Courseware consists of four modules: Communicating Effectively, Conveying Professionalism, Promoting Teamwork and Collaboration, and Thinking Critically and Solving Problems. These competencies are a key component of WIN’s comprehensive approach to preparing students for success and providing future employers with workplace-ready candidates.

At the end of the class, students will take WIN Learning’s National Work Readiness Essential Soft Skills Assessment, a career-contextualized assessment that goes beyond the concept knowledge evaluated by the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) tests and other academic end-of-course and college entrance exams. The WIN assessment measures students' ability to apply the foundational workplace skills required across all occupations and industries. The National Work Readiness Essential Soft Skills Credential correlates to the U.S. Department of Labor’s O*NET Content Model Framework, the nation’s leading source of occupational data, and is endorsed by the National Work Ready Council, a national nonprofit workforce development, training, and advocacy organization.
