The federal interagency National Council for the American Worker released a new white paper today as part of an ongoing initiative encouraging the private sector and educational institutions to combat the skills crisis by investing in and increasing demand-driven education, training, and re-training. Outlined in this paper are recommendations to the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board on key action items. Credential Engine contributed to this paper as part of its work on the Council’s data transparency working group. The working group’s recommendations aim to build on existing efforts to create interoperable digital learning records that include educational attainment, nontraditional learning pathways, experience, professional affiliations, and other certifications to help job seekers attain high wage jobs.
