The Work-Ready Certificate is earned after completing just four classes: Employer-Focused Competency, Success: Land your Next Job, Utilizing NC Works, and Fundamental Company Assessments. After only 16 days, you will have a top-notch resume and cover letter, know how to pass the company test, have the interview skills you need to get hired, and understand how to work in a team. These essential skills will give you the edge you need to get the job.

Classes are free for students who are unemployed or underemployed. According to CCC’s Workforce Training Coordinator, Charles Christenbury, “The program works in conjunction with a student’s educational accomplishments and work history and shows them how to effectively package it and present it to an employer making a strong case for them to be chosen for the position.” The Work-Ready Certificate Program is a partnership of CCC, the Division of Workforce Solutions, and Cleveland NC Works.

Cleveland Community College Students Awarded Golden LEAF Scholarships

Eleven students from Cleveland Community College received scholarships through the Golden LEAF Scholarship program.  The Golden LEAF Scholarship program, designed to help North Carolinians attend the state’s community colleges, is funded through a $750,000 grant from the Golden LEAF Foundation.

The scholarship can be used for tuition, books, fees, supplies, transportation and childcare related to attending classes during the 2014-15 academic year, and industry-recognized credential testing expenses that address skill gaps upon course completion.  Eligible students must demonstrate financial need and reside in rural counties that are tobacco-dependent and/or economically distressed. Scholarships for both continuing education and college-credit students are available during the fall, spring and summer semesters. College-credit students may apply for up to $750 per semester and continuing education students are eligible for up to $250 per term.

The following students were awarded scholarships for the fall semester:

James Alexander, EMT – Basic

Ryan Carpenter, EMT – Basic

Nickolas Fulbright, EMT – Basic

Alexis Guerrero, Associate in Arts

Ciara Haynes, Associate in General Education

Andrew Jackson, Early Childhood

Telena Jones, Early Childhood

Dwight McGuire, Electronics Engineering Technology

Joshua McMillian, Associate in Arts

Margie Petty, Associate in General Education

Ethan Ramsey, EMT – Paramedic

“The Golden LEAF Foundation is proud to have awarded over 8,000 Golden LEAF Scholarships to help North Carolinians attend our state’s community colleges,” said Dan Gerlach, Golden LEAF President. “Our hope is that these scholarships will help build the talent, knowledge and skills of our current and future workforce, especially in the rural areas of our state.”
