The Trident Workforce Development Board offers WIN Learning’s Ready to Work Assessments as the state-sponsored career readiness assessment. The Ready to Work assessment is a workforce education and development tool, comprised of three proctored assessments: Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information, and Locating Information, leading to a work-ready credential. These assessments are at no cost to job seekers. For more information on WIN’s Learning Assessments, please call 1-888-717-9461.
WorkKeys consists of three elements: Job skill assessments, which are designed to measure foundational and personal skills as they apply to the workplace. Job analysis, which pinpoints or estimates skill benchmarks for specific job positions that individuals must meet through testing. Skill training, which helps individuals boost their scores. Obtaining Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum WorkKeys signifies to employers that the job seeker has the skills needed for a position.
WorkKeys Assessments are also offered at all three SC Works Trident Centers for a fee. Employers are encouraged to contact ACT at 1-800-967-5539 for questions on ACT Profiles and WorkKeys Assessments.
