The WIN assessment, an online preparation program provided by PA CareerLink Lancaster, assesses a person’s abilities in Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information. Conover, also provided by PA CareerLink Lancaster, assesses a person’s knowledge of soft skills. Upon completion of WIN and Conver, you will then travel to the PA CareerLink Lancaster where you will take the Ready2Work assessment. As previously noted, successful completion of the Ready2Work assessment has many benefits for employment and training opportunities.
Ready2Work is a nationally recognized program that also assesses a person’s abilities in reading, mathematics and locating information. Many employers in right here in Lancaster County (and nationally) use the Ready2Work assessment as a screening tool to determine if their employment candidates have the necessary skills in reading, mathematics, and locating information to be successful in a job. Additionally, successful completion of Ready2Work gives each student the opportunity to use the Business Education Partnership grant given by PA CareerLink Lancaster for additional training (short-term or degree based) in a high priority career.
For example, in the 2016-2017 school year, Derek, a Cooperative Education student, successfully completed the Ready2Work assessment in January. In June of 2017, Derek graduated from Garden Spot High School and on July 28, 2017, Derek graduated from the 5-week Production Welding Certificate program from Thaddeus Stevens College. The Production Welding course was completely paid for by the Business Education Partnership grant. The grant paid for his tuition, materials, and safety equipment including his gloves, hood, and bib. His pay at his job increased by $4.00/hour as a result of the completion of the program.
You will also have the opportunity to increase your skills in a training program (short-term or degree based) in a high priority career completely or partially paid for by the Business Education Partnership grant after successful completion of the Ready2Work assessment.
