Career Readiness Certificates

I keep track od some of the thinking on economic development and enteprise that develops in the US.  One of the current ideas on the rise (fads?) is that of the Career Readiness Certificate or CRC.  The Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) is a qualification that gives employers and career seekers a ‘uniform, standard, objective measure’ of key workplace skills. It is being used by job seekers across the country as an employment credential, and by employers as an assessment of a person’s trainability for an entry-level job or for a promotion within the company.

  • Do we have a similar qualification here in the UK?
  • What is it?
  • How is it valued by employers?
  • Can it be easily accessed by those who have failed to thrive in the education system?

You can find out more about CRCs here and here
