Exploring Credentials in Inclusive Higher Education
In a world full of talk about jobs, credentials, apprenticeships, and the expansion of work opportunities, how do higher education programs for students with ID hook into the conversation and increase their capacity to provide access to meaningful credentials. We start with the basics: what are credentials and what are the different types? How do they work? Who offers them? Join Bryan Wilson, Director of the Workforce Data Quality Campaign, a project of the National Skills Coalition, to learn more about credentials and what they can mean for students with intellectual disabilities. The WDQC initiative promotes federal and state policies that provide stakeholders (students/workers, employers, policymakers, educators/practitioners) with actionable data that is effectively used to assess and improve our nation’s education and workforce strategies.
