  • What is WorkKeys?


    WorkKeys is an ACT assessment that is administered to all North Carolina Career and Technical Education Concentrators the year that they will graduate high school.  A CTE Concentrator is a student who has completed a career pathway program of study through their high school or Career and College Promise courses. The WorkKeys assessment measures employability skills that are critical to job success. These skills are essential to any occupation, skilled or professional, at any level of education and in any industry. CTE Concentrators participate in the following ACT WorkKeys assessments at their high school during the designated testing windows:
    • Workplace Documents
    • Applied Mathematics
    • Graphic Literacy
    By taking the WorkKeys tests, students can earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) and a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). CRC's and NCRC's are awarded at four different levels: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. For questions on whether your child is eligible to take the WorkKeys test, please contact your school CTE Facilitator.
    After completing the ACT WorkKeys, students can gain access to their CRC by visiting:  ACT Workkeys Quick Start Guide
