Workforce Education

Kentucky Adult Education programs provide instruction aligned with the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education to assist unemployed and under-employed individuals, as well as individuals seeking to transition to postsecondary education and ultimately employment with family sustainable wages to improve academic and workplace skills in pursuit of a GED and/or NCRC.

National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC)
•    Provides skill-based credentials to Kentuckians to help them secure employment.
•    Provides employers with workers that have documented skills proficiencies.
•    Certifies applicants who employers can hire with confidence.

The NCRC is based on three WorkKeys skill areas:
•    Reading for Information 
•    Applied Math
•    Locating Information

To earn an NCRC, a person must take all three assessments.
The NCRC is awarded in three levels:
•    Silver – for a score of 4 on all three assessments
•    Gold – for a score of 5 on all three assessments
•    Platinum – for a score of 6 on all three assessments
