Quality Postsecondary Credential Policy Academy
The Quality Postsecondary Credential Policy Academy is an eighteen-month initiative aimed at defining quality non-degree credentials; developing a policy agenda to increase the number of residents with quality credentials, and developing the data policies to support such efforts. The state teams are led by a Governor’s education and/or workforce policy advisor, the state higher education agency leader, and the labor or workforce agency leader, with membership drawn from agency leaders representing economic development, human services, elementary and secondary education, and the state community and technical college system. Some states also include external stakeholders, including policy advocates from NSC’s SkillSPAN coalitions. States participating are Alabama, Colorado, Louisiana, New Jersey, Oregon, and Virginia.
