A partnership between the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Ready to Work is designed to promote the success of Kentucky Transititional Assistance Program (K-TAP) recipients who attend community and technical colleges and to provide short-term training opportunities.
Let us help with:
Ready to Work services have been expanded to include K-Tap adult basic education students who are working toward their GED and high school graduates updating basic skills. Work and Learn assists students by helping them make the transition to college smooth and successful.
What is "Work Study?"
Ready to Work provides work opportunites both on-campus and off-campus through Work Study programs. Parents gain work experience while earning extra income that will not reduce their K-TAP checks. The placement of Work Study students with both private and non-profit employers helps prepare them for the workplace.
