Ottawa County working on ACT Work Ready Community Certification

We had an excellent OKCRC update training with OESC Workforce managers and staff on Tuesday at Kiamichi Technology Center in McAlester. A question came up about Work Ready Communities and a representative from Ottawa County, who is currently working in ACT's Work Ready Communities initiative was present and provided the group with details from the recent academy in New Orleans. You can learn how your county, WIB area, technology center district or tribal nation can join ACT's Certified Work Ready Communities at http://workreadycommunities.org/
and as always feel free to contact me with questions.

Unpacking Career Readiness Report Released by ACT

ACT has been refining and deepening its groundbreaking research into these questions. "Unpacking 'Career Readiness,'" released today, outlines a model of academic readiness for the workplace that includes work, career, and job readiness. The report also calls for a broad model of college and career readiness—a "life skills" framework—that supports a truly holistic picture of college and career readiness.

Read the report and learn more about the exciting research ACT is doing to understand more about college and career readiness: http://www.act.org/research/policymakers/reports/unpackingreadiness.html
