Advance Wisconsin- Manufacturing (Making the Future: The Wisconsin Strategy – Round 2 TAACCCT Grant) presented at a Department of Labor convening in Washington D.C. Several other TAACCCT grantees attended. Wisconsin offered a workshop on Credit for Prior Learning. It was a collaboration between the grant management team, Wisconsin’s technical colleges and CAEL, which is a contracted partner in helping to establish best practices for identifying and awarding credit for prior experience or training. The feedback was encouraging as attendees learned and conversed about how to further this important topic that will support individuals returning to college for additional training to obtain a new job.
The gathering as a whole was described by many as an opportune time to engage with their peers who have a common cause.
