Midwest Credential Transparency Alliance (MCTA) Pathways Action Team: A Brief

October 19, 2021

The Midwest Credential Transparency Alliance Pathways Action Team has been working together over the past several months to identify existing career pathways in the Midwest, and investigating how these pathways could be improved through credential transparency. The research findings show that progress towards pathways is occurring at multiple levels across the Midwest region. The emerging challenge is to ensure that these pathways are consistently articulated, well connected, and supported by policies, practices, communications, and role responsibilities. To help guide these developments, the action team articulated in this brief a pathway model for the Midwest region to follow.
