Employers + Educators Come Together to Translate Learning into Workforce Skills
Over 300 institutions started using our badge toolkit, now the Lab is looking for a select group to bring their employer partners to test the efficacy of 21st Century Skills Badges.
Participating Institutions Receive (at no cost):
- The Lab's implementation and support services
- Credly premium services
- Strengthened pipeline to national employer
What do I (learning institution) have to do?
- Bring a committed employer partner to the table
- Provide a 'home' for the initiative within your institution
- Uphold the community requirements for adoption
Join our #TeeUpTheSkills Cohort
Over the next academic year, the selected learning institutions will work with the Lab and their employer partner to issue the Lab's 21st Century Skills Badges.
The employer partners have agreed to give students with the lab's badges a 'first look' if they apply to their company. This study will allow us to see to what extent digital badges can level the playing field in hiring and provide valuable insight into the interoperability of emerging credentials with today’s hiring tools and practices.
Why the T?
An Alternative Job Description Tool
The T-Profile is a visual construct of both the ideal combination of technical skills and the 21st century skills associated with a particular job. It can be used as an alternative or complement to a wordy job description, as a way for a prospective candidate to understand how his/her skills "match" with those of the position, or even as a way for prospective candidates to develop and display his/her skills.
