WorkKeys® for Educators

WorkKeys® Career Readiness Assessments, developed by ACT, measures the skills that are crucial for job success. Over 17,000 occupations have been profiled to identify the skills needed to learn and perform on the job.

WorkKeys® assessments are available for nine skill areas:

  • Applied Math
  • Workplace Documents
  • Graphic Literacy
  • Workplace Observation
  • Applied Technology
  • Observation
  • Business Writing
  • Fit
  • Talent

In Central Pennsylvania, Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents are core components because they measure the skills valuable for any occupation and seen by employers as crucial basic skills. Successful completion in all three assessments will result in a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC).

National Career Readiness Certificate

The National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) was introduced in Central Pennsylvania in early 2010. The NCRC is also awarded on the four levels of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

WorkKeys® is offered in all the Central Pennsylvania CareerLink® locations, and since its inception in 2006, has grown in popularity with local organizations and employers. Click here to meet our Employers.
