  • Micro-credentials: Opportunity through Stackable Achievements

    The Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) has received a grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry to develop the Micro-credentials: Opportunity through Stackable Achievements program. The award is part of a $6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Workforce Innovation Fund for the development of micro-credentials in the state’s workforce development system. The press release can be found here.

    We are proud to offer an innovative program at the Community College of Allegheny County to help individuals in our region find careers and post-secondary education through a pathway of stackable micro-credentials. Three career pathways have been designed to help students gain entry-level positions in our region.

    Micro-credentialing is a new theory in education that focuses on the attainment of smaller, focused credentials proving knowledge of specific skills in the learner. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry is supporting the implementation of this program here at the Community College of Allegheny College in partnership with Partner4Work.
