Connecting Learning to Earning: The Power of a Learner-Owned Record

by NSC Blog | Sep 20, 2021 | Learning Employment Records |

As Rick Torres, President and CEO of the National Student Clearinghouse, says, “all learners deserve a way to translate their full education, training, and work experience to a record of transferable skills that will open the doors to high-wage occupations and careers.”

To help learners, join us for the “Connecting Learning to Earning: The Power of a Learner-Owned Record” webinar on Tuesday, Oct. 12 from 2 pm to 3 pm ET, to learn how higher education, technologists, employers, and others are building a Learning & Employment Record to translate a learners’ full education, training, and work experience to a record of transferable skills.

  • Explore why skill-denominated achievements are the future and how a learner can assert their unique talent brand via a Learning & Employment Record.
  • Address how coalitions and cross-sector collaboration can unlock innovation and benefit students and workers.
