Connect Your Learners’ Records to Employment Pathways
Today’s learners may gain skills and credentials in college, online, at their workplaces, through nondegree programs or through industry associations. To paint a full picture of a learner’s acquired knowledge, skills and abilities, all these achievements should count. Help your learners leverage these academic and employment records all in one place with a digital wallet and modern pathway tools!

During this webinar, National Student Clearinghouse experts and others will showcase mobility, credentials exchange and how institutions fill gaps between the learners’ academic achievements and career skills. Register today to discover how to empower your learners to experience seeing accomplishments in a single, secure location — no matter where, when, or how those learning achievements were earned!

Join the 1-hour webinar to:
• Discover lessons learned to support learner mobility and skills gap analysis.

• Empower lifelong learners to curate, share and apply their learning and employment achievements in meaningful ways.

• See how traditional academic data, open badges, co-curricular, non-credit achievements and comprehensive learner records can provide powerful tools, insights, and pathways for learners.
