WIN LEARNING TO OFFER ITS CAREER AND COLLEGE READINESS SYSTEM TO URBAN SCHOOL DISTRICTS THROUGH PARTNERSHIP WITH SUSSMAN SALES

9/2/2014 12:00:00 AM

Kingston, Tenn. – Sept. 3, 2014 – A 2012 report from the National Center for Education Statistics states that urban youth often have more difficulty envisioning and investing in their futures fully, due to circumstances endemic to many urban communities. To help expose urban students to a vast variety of career paths and provide them with the required academic and skills instruction, WIN Learning is now offering the WIN Career Readiness System through Sussman Sales, the leading provider of education solutions to New York Public Schools and other urban districts.

The WIN Career Readiness System is an award-winning, web-based solution that provides a comprehensive career exploration and planning system, college readiness assessments, and career readiness foundational academic and employability skills support.

“Many urban youth have limited expectations of their potential for college or career. Often it’s due to a lack of knowledge of what careers are out there. Or they think that college is simply unobtainable to them. And unfortunately, many urban districts lack the resources to help students successfully navigate the path to career and college readiness,” said Steve Sussman, president, curriculum division, Sussman Sales. “The WIN Learning system is a comprehensive solution that districts can quickly implement, to help students understand and prepare for the realities of life after high school, through personalized project-based learning and career exploration. We are excited to offer this enterprise solution to our customers because we know it will absolutely help them produce graduates who are truly college and career ready.”

Four components make up the WIN Learning system. They include:

- myStrategic Compass, a career exploration, planning and guidance tool that prompts learners to explore career pathways aligned with their interests, skills and work values. The program’s objective is to drive students to develop an education plan to support their goals.

- WIN Career Readiness Courseware, (CRC) which is designed to link education directly to the needs of the economy, and offers instructional content that reinforces the relevance between foundational skills and emerging high-demand, high-wage jobs.

- WIN College Readiness Courseware (CRC+), a digital test prep curriculum that helps learners achieve foundational college readiness in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Reading and Writing/English.

- WIN Soft Skills, which teaches employability and social skills including conveying professionalism, communicating effectively, promoting teamwork and collaboration, thinking critically, and problem solving.

 

“We are proud to partner with such a proven company as Sussman Sales,” stated Joseph Goins, executive vice president of WIN Learning. “They are a regional leader and offer schools and districts the best products with seamless implementation support. And most importantly, they share our goal of preparing high school students for college, careers, and citizenship.”
