To accelerate recovery from COVID-19 and lay the foundation for talent pipelines, community colleges are doubling down on strategies that quickly prepare individuals for work, while also providing them clear next steps for learning and opportunities for growth. Education Strategy Group will share new research on how to align non-credit, industry-aligned programs, and credit programs at community colleges and promote these offerings as the first stop on a pathway to a good job and further education. By the end of the workshop, participants will:
- receive expert resources, guidance, and clear steps on how to create stronger and more seamless pathways across non-credit and credit programs; and
- apply that guidance in action planning to further specify what it will take to achieve alignment across non-credit and credit programs.
Pathways Lead and/or chief academic officer; lead of workforce, career, and technical education and/or continuing education; and faculty are recommended to attend this workshop. In addition, leads from the registrar’s office, financial aid, and advising are also invited to attend.
