  • NC Workforce Development Partnership Conference - October 2006 01/11/12 NCCCS ACT took those 3 Skill Clusters and broke them down into 8 skill areas.

  • NC Workforce Development Partnership Conference - October 2006 01/11/12 NCCCS WorkKeys provides us the employment tool that identifies those required skills based on the job profiles and the individuals competencies.

The 20% is not acceptable when we have a tool that can substantially change this outlook.
