SHEEO is pleased to announce the launch of a new state policy academy. A two-year initiative developed in partnership with the Education Strategy Group (ESG) and Opportunity America (OA), the academy will support states as they build capacity to better realize the potential of noncredit education and increase economic mobility for learners who begin their postsecondary journey through noncredit programming. The academy will address how states can develop a taxonomy for noncredit programs, improve noncredit data collection, develop funding recommendations for noncredit programs, and better communicate about noncredit pathways. The Noncredit Mobility Academy is recruiting participants from states committed to improving the quality of their career-centered noncredit education and providing learners accelerated pathways to degrees.
The Noncredit Mobility Academy is recruiting participants from states committed to improving the quality of their career-centered noncredit education and providing learners accelerated pathways to degrees, and, ultimately, economic mobility.
States will be asked to select working teams representing the SHEEO agency, the state workforce system, and institutions that offer career-centered noncredit education. These teams will attend instructional convenings and work closely with coaches providing technical assistance.
