New Report On Education And Workforce Training Initiatives
The policy paper advocates for creation of a career pathways credentialing system designed to produce credentials that are trusted by employers and educational institutions throughout the country and allow students to quickly earn shorter-term credentials with clear labor market value and then build on them to access more advanced jobs and higher wages. It also describes innovative programs that are being developed at the federal, state, and local levels that are leading the way in redesigning how we train our country's workforce.
The authors conclude that, "As a nation, we need to recognize and embrace that there are multiple paths to high quality careers that involve post-secondary education: portable, stackable industry-recognized credentials and/or a traditional college degree."
