Basic Skills


Madison County is in the process of becoming a Work Ready Community, which is a community based frame-work that:

  • Links workforce development to education
  • Aligns with the economic development needs of communities, regions and states
  • Matches individuals to jobs based on skill levels

By participating in ACT’s® Work Ready Communities initiative, counties, regions and states are helping:

  • Business and industry know exactly what foundational skills they need for a productive workforce – and to easily communicate their needs
  • Individuals understand what skills are required by employers – and how to prepare themselves for success
  • Policy makers consistently measure the skills gap in a timely manner at the national, state and local levels
  • Educators close the skills gap, via tools integrated into career pathways with stackable industry-recognized credentials
  • Economic developers use an on-demand reporting tool to market the quality of their workforce
