West Virginia – 2011

The West Virginia Department of Education implemented four key components of the WIN Career Readiness System. MyStrategic Compass is available to every middle and high school student in the state. All CTE students complete career exploration activities, identify target occupations and build individual skills-based career development plans. The skills needed to perform the target occupations are developed via the WIN Career Readiness Courseware. Districts and state offices use the WIN Strategic Compass to evaluate the activity of students in the myStrategic Compass site and to align that data with key economic indicators. WIN Professional Services provided trainiing in the administration of the system to over 600 teachers. In the first 4 months of the project, over 11,500 learners have logged time in the system, and scores on state-mandated workforce credential testing have improved significantly.

Republic of Palau – 2011

The WIN Career Readiness Courseware was implemented through the Ministry of Education at every high school in the Republic. Every teacher was trained in the management of the WIN system.

Florida – 2007

These seals validate the graduate’s mastery of the core employability skills taught in the WIN Career Readiness Courseware. Every applicant for Unemployment Compensation, as part of the application process, completes the WIN Initial Skills Review, a brief assessment of the individual’s core employability skills. These individuals then have the option of improving mastery of those skills by accessing the WIN Career Readiness Courseware at no charge. To date, over 500,000 assessments have been adminstered, and over 104,000 credentials have been awarded.400+ employers now request, require or recognize the Florida Ready to Work Credential in their hiring processes.
