Community Colleges are the new go-to for skills-based learning. They are usually more closely connected to the local employer market, increasing opportunities for learners to transition into work.
Credentialate helps to democratise skills-based education, ensuring that everyone has greater access to occupational choice – and are more resilient to job loss.
Solve skills data silos and bridge gaps
Many Community Colleges have performance data locked away in siloed systems, or are not structuring skills data in ways that support data mobility. This is particularly problematic for states that receive funding based on employability or other performance data, which they either can’t evidence or are not capturing.
Credentialate collects, collates and structures data using the openRSD rich skill descriptors (RSDs) library, unleashing your skills data and enabling a seamless data flow, making skills data visible and transparent.
Boost your micro-credential and alternative education offerings
Credentialate recognises in-demand workplace skills in meaningful ways, increasing the value of your micro-credential and alternative education offerings. Learners are issued a unique Personal Evidence Record, embedded in a digital badge that can be shared with potential employers or further education providers.
The Personal Evidence Record includes quantitative and qualitative evidence, artefacts, framework alignment and job or labour market data, giving them greater meaning and relevance.
Increase equity and learner confidence in expressing their skills
For underserved and minority communities seeking to gain equitable access to education, confidence is king.
Receipt of a Personal Evidence Record has been proven to increase learner confidence in expressing their skills in 76% of learners in an international efficacy study.
