ACT WORK KEYS

We are offering the ACT Work Keys exam for Seniors October 5th, 2022

The ACT Work Keys test is different than the ACT exam. The ACT Work Keys test  measures various job-related foundational and soft skills, crucial to success in the workplace.

Students and job-seekers, as well as experienced professionals, can use the ACT WorkKeys test to assess their own skills and get a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. They can then use this understanding to better prepare for the upcoming exams or their upcoming job interviews.

Employers also use the ACT WorkKeys test scores to take the guesswork out of determining employee qualifications and to appoint, train, and retain a high-quality workforce.

The ACT WorkKeys will be offered to SCC Juniors on TBD 2022, beginning at 8 am. 

For more information about the ACT Work Keys click HERE
