About South Carolina Certified Work Ready Communities

South Carolina's Certified Work Ready Communities initiative aims to ensure the growth of South Carolina communities by creating an environment conducive to business and workforce development.

The state's work ready leadership team will continue to foster and build a coordinated and uniform partnership among stakeholders using the Work Ready Communities approach, leveraging and maximizing its collective workforce development efforts at the county, regional and state level.
South Carolina's vision is to ensure a ready workforce that serves as an economic development tool to attract and maintain businesses in the state. Its vision is to link education and workforce development together and align with economic development needs of the state, its regions and communities.

The Work Ready Community initiative enables community leaders to rally behind the concept of a ready-to-work workforce. Mayors, council members, superintendents,principals, teachers, and business leaders cheerlead this effort, creating a team approach to workforce development. The motivation for their engagement will be the achievement of being recognized as a Work Ready Community.

This website reports the ACT® National Career Readiness Certificates earned at the county and state level and the progress being made by those participating states and counties in the ACT Work Ready Community initiative. This site only represents data stored in the ACT RegiSTAR™ system, a web-based reporting and management tool for National Career Readiness Certificates.

State and national NCRC data runs from January 2006 through October 31, 2015 , while county-level data is starting from January 2012. State job profile data runs from January 2007 through October 31, 2015 , while national job profile data reaches back to 1993. Again, please note that county-level NCRC data collection began in January 2012 for WorkKeys Internet Version, and in July 2012 for pencil and paper assessments. State and national certificate totals include historical data prior to 2012.

WorkKeys® assessments are used across the nation, and many states have built their own Career Readiness Certificates based upon WorkKeys assessment results. You will find an asterisk denoting those states. This website will continue to evolve as the first two rounds of participating states give us feedback on what they would like to see -- and based on your feedback, as well.
