Increasing Opportunities: Building Pathways with Stackable Non-Degree Credentials
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
2:00 PM ~ 3:30 PM ET
In this webinar, hosted by Education Strategy Group and National Skills Coalition, three leading thinkers will discuss why some credentials stack and others don’t and how to better ensure that more workers and students have access to career pathways that lead to family-supporting jobs.
Institutions and states need to change their policies so that the stackability of non-degree credentials is not an empty promise.
In the face of high unemployment and economic uncertainty, there is growing interest from policymakers, business leaders, and workers alike in the potential of non-degree credentials to help support rapid transitions to family-supporting jobs, especially where such credentials can serve as an entry point for further education and training. But evidence on “stackable” credentials is mixed, and there are clearly more steps that practitioners and policymakers can take to strengthen opportunities for workers, particularly those who have been most heavily impacted by the current crisis and those who were already facing systemic barriers to economic opportunities.
