Making Sense of Credentials: A State Roadmap and Action Guide for Transparency

There are nearly one million unique credentials in the United States; however, job seekers are not always aware of which credentials will lead to their desired career outcomes, employers do not always understand what skills a worker brings to a job, and educators sometimes struggle to keep up with workplace requirements that are in flux. This resource from Credential Engine provides a roadmap and an action guide for state policymakers to establish credential transparency, which aligns education and the workforce systems in a way that ensures credentials are easily accessible, understood, comparable, connected to other critical education and workforce data, and communicated so that they serve everyone.
