Transition to the Workforce
The basic and academic skills required in today’s workplace go far beyond the traditional “three R’s” to include communication, critical thinking and problem solving, as well as a willingness to embrace new challenges. Workers must be able to benefit from company and organization training programs and assume new responsibilities as needed, in addition to possessing other soft skills.
Employment candidates must be able to show strong reading and math skills Accordingly, CASAS has developed these assessments to help students transition to today’s workforce.
The CASAS Workforce Skills Certification System (WSCS) provides the foundation to prepare a skilled and able entry-level workforce. Candidates who demonstrate advanced skills in multiple skill areas are eligible to earn a locally awarded, nationally recognized certificate.
