Credentials employers recognize and value in today's workforce

While professional attitudes and work habits are essential for the 21st century economy, they are often overlooked in educational programs. WIN Learning's Work Ready and Essential Soft Skills credentials helps learners develop and demonstrate the foundational workplace academics, attitudes, and behaviors that are critical to career and life success. The WIN Career Readiness System is a comprehensive approach to preparing  emerging and reemerging jobseekers for success while providing future employers with workplace-ready candidates.

Work Ready Credential

The Work Ready assessments are based on validated career readiness assessments that provide a correlation of the skills a learner demonstrates and the skills needed to prepare for a job according to the U.S. Department of Labor's O*NET Job Zones Framework.

The Work Ready Credential provides a customized credential that learners and jobseekers can add to their portfolio to show that they have mastered foundational academic skills and are ready to work. 

There are four credential levels: Achievement Levels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Each Achievement Level correlates to an O*NET Job Zone. The higher the learner or jobseeker scores, the greater his or her readiness for careers in higher-level O*NET Job Zones. 

The credential level is determined by the lowest score across all three assessments. For example, a learner or jobseeker who scores a Level 4 in Work Ready Math, a Level 4 in Work Ready Reading, and a Level 3 in Work Ready Data will earn an Achievement Level 3 credential because the lowest score was Level 3.  

Essential Soft Skills Credential 

WIN Essential Soft Skills assessment is composed of questions measuring entry-level work tasks and behaviors, including communicating effectively; conveying professionalism; promoting teamwork and collaboration; and thinking critically and solving problems. The assessment items require the learner to choose two answers for each question, the “best” and “worst” answers for handling each situation.

The online assessment requires use of a lock-down browser and has a time limit of 60 minutes. To earn the credential, the participant must achieve a scale score of 203 or greater. The back of the credential details the skills mastered by the participant which makes adding the credential on their resume and in their portfolio for employers to quickly recognize the skills needed most from today's workforce.

Validated credentials based on the competencies employers value most when making hiring and retention decisions.
