WorkKeys Assessment: 

It is strongly recommended that students complete the WorkKeys Assessment prior to graduation. WorkKeys is an assessment system used to measure job skills that are believed to be critical to success in the workplace. It provides students with a portable credential that is nationally recognized by business and industry, provides valuable feedback to curriculum programs, determines skills in need of improvement and offers participants opportunities for career exploration. Recipients can be awarded Career Readiness Certificates (CRC) of Gold, Silver or Bronze based on their skill levels in Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information and Locating Information.

The cost of the assessment will be funded from a combination of grants, fees and institutional money. Please note that the assessment results will not impact a student's GPA or program completion. Please visit Vance-Granville’s Human Resource Development (HRD) for more information.
