Project Summary

Advance Vermont’s mission is to grow the number of Vermonters with postsecondary credentials, increase equity in educational attainment, and strengthen connections among education, training, and employment so that everyone can shape and share Vermont’s prosperity. The state has set an ambitious postsecondary attainment goal of 70% of residents having a credential of value by 2025. To help meet this goal, Advance Vermont is collaborating with institutions, agencies, and organizations across the state to develop a portal where opportunity seekers can go to discover credentials aligned to in-demand careers. The portal will utilize Credential Engine’s technical infrastructure to ensure the credential information is transparent, aligning with the New England Board of Higher Education’s High Value Credentials for New England initiative.
