Kingston, Tennessee – July 27, 2023 – WIN Learning, a national leading developer of award-winning career readiness solutions since 1996, has been selected by the Tennessee Board of Regents to provide a student readiness solution to the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology across the state for the next five years.
The student readiness solution measures the foundational workplace academic skills of college applicants to determine their level of preparation for a specific program of study. The student readiness solution is a combination of WIN Learning’s Academic Skills Courseware and the Academic Skills Assessments. The courseware and assessments contain three core subject areas, Work Ready Math, Work Ready Reading, and Work Ready Data.
The achievement level skills correlate to the U.S. Department of Labor’s O*NET Content Model Framework, the nation’s leading source of non-bias occupational data. When students pass all three proctored assessments, they earn the National Work Readiness Credential - Academic Skills which is a valid and reliable indicator of their mastery of these core skills. The credential is endorsed by the National Work Readiness Council, a national nonprofit workforce development, training, and advocacy organization.
The assessments not only test students’ foundational academic skills, but they also evaluate students’ ability to apply those skills to real life workplace scenarios across all industries and occupations, which helps students better understand how prepared they are to pursue a specific occupation and how these skills can be utilized no matter their career path.
“Providing the student readiness solution to all TCAT campuses, including those located in correctional facilities, is a great way for participants to see how prepared they are for post-secondary education and how their skills correlate to occupations in O*NET,” said Teresa Chasteen-Dunn, CEO of WIN Learning. “We are proud to be working with our home state to prepare students for their careers and strengthen the Tennessee workforce.”
