Partnerships in the education and credentialing landscape play a crucial role in driving innovation and creating opportunities for learners and professionals. Since 2019, Credential Engine, a renowned non-profit organization dedicated to promoting transparency and understanding in the credentialing marketplace, has been partnering with Parchment. Together, we have been working to help institutions and employers better understand the value of academic and professional credentials.

The Power of Partnership

Credential Engine and Parchment’s collaboration brings together our collective expertise and resources to create a more transparent and accessible credentialing ecosystem. By leveraging our respective strengths, we have been working to bridge the gap between education and employment, facilitating seamless transitions for individuals seeking to advance their education and career goals.

“Helping our learners is at the center of everything we do. When institutions can articulate this level of data about their credentials, learners can show the market what capabilities their credential represents and the value they can bring to an institution or organization,” said Parchment CEO Matthew Pittinsky. “Our collaboration with Credential Engine makes that information easily accessible through our integration of Credential Engine’s open standard Credential Registry.” 

Showcasing the Value of Academic and Professional Credentials

The CTDL Credential Registry provides an excellent platform for organizations to showcase the value of their academic and professional credentials. By publishing their information to the Registry, educational institutions and employers can provide comprehensive details about their credentials, such as certificates, degrees, and digital badges. This increased transparency enables learners and employees to make more informed decisions about their education and career pathways.

Supporting Learners from All Backgrounds

One of the primary objectives of the partnership between Credential Engine and Parchment is to ensure that learners from all backgrounds have equal access to education and career opportunities. By leveraging the CTDL Credential Registry, educational institutions and employers can reach a wider audience, including learners from lower socioeconomic groups who may face barriers to accessing traditional educational resources. This expanded access helps to level the playing field and provide equal opportunities for all learners to succeed.

Embracing a Future of Transparency and Opportunity

The partnership between Credential Engine and Parchment, along with the launch of the CTDL Credential Registry, represents a significant step forward in fostering transparency and accessibility in the credentialing landscape. By leveraging our collective expertise, we aim to empower learners, institutions and employers to better understand the value of academic and professional credentials. Through the Registry, barriers are being broken down, creating equal opportunities for individuals to achieve their education and career goals.
