  2. Breakout Description Come to this session to learn why and how programs can develop stackable certificates or credentials to help Career Education students both build and document their skill levels.

  4. The Rules…. • Title 5, §55070 Credit Certificates If CO approved, called Certificate of Achievement CANNOT be called: Certificate of Achievement, Competency, or Completion

  6. Data: Launchboard & CTE Outcomes Survey Completers Transfers Skills-Builders https://www.calpassplus.org/LaunchBoard/Home.aspx

  7. So, Why Stack?

  8. Stackable Certificates • Can be one or more courses (local vs. transcripted) • Align curriculum to workforce needs • Provide Employability Skills • Align with external certifications and/or licensure

  9. Stackable Certificates • Design is INTENTIONAL • Gaps in current curriculum (program review) • Gaps in data (CTE Outcome Survey, Launchboard, Scorecard) • Employer need (lack of low to mid-entry talent) • Industry change

  10. Where to Start? • Guided Pathway Meta Majors • Program Mapping • Local student demand • Instructional Faculty/Non-Instructional (Cross Functional Conversations) • Advisory Committee • Industry / Employers • DSN, SN • Other?

  11. Where to Start? Q & A • Occupation-specific labor pool needs • Gaps in foundational skills • Gaps in technical and employability skills • Current industry challenges and operational obstacles • Projected changes to the industry that will impact curriculum • Partnership opportunities, including work-based learning experiences • Industry certifications most valued in and/or required of job applicants

  12. CDCP/Non Credit CDCP: Career Development and College Preparation • Noncredit Courses are free, repeatable and not subject to 30 unit basic skills limitation. • Approved sequence of noncredit courses that culminate in a Certificate of Completion, Certificate of Competency or Adult High School Diploma • English as a Second Language • Elementary and Secondary Basic Skills • Short –term Career Technical Programs • Immigrant Education • Adults with Disabilities

  13. CDCP/Non Credit CDCP: Career Development and College Preparation • Certificates of Completion, Certificate of Competency or Adult High School Diploma may be step one of a stackable certificate • Provide English Language Skills • Provide Elementary and Secondary Basic Skills • Provide Foundational Courses for Career Technical Programs

  28. Guided Pathways Application- Role of Certificates

  29. GP META MAJOR SAMPLE

  30. Focusing on Holistic Student Support Grounded in Equity MAPPING WORKSHOPS •2 Hours Cross Functional Conversations on Programs including Instructors, Deans, Counselors, Support Faculty and Staff •Focus on most efficient path for students to complete program including GE where applicable •Review potential support services and activities to support student success and engagement •Identify potential roadblocks or bottlenecks for students •Give students the information they need to make informed choices •Reviewing Achievement Data and Number and Types of Degrees and Certificates and Stackability

  31. Mapping Outcomes •95% said they were satisfied with the Mapping Sessions •97% said they had a better understanding of the role of Counseling •100% said they had a better understanding of their program •100% said they thought the maps would be helpful to students

  32. What They Said--COLLABORATION •“The collaboration between discipline faculty and counselors was much needed and helped to clarify the importance of scheduling certain courses in particular semesters. Overall, I think we are moving in the direction GP suggests: collaborative efforts across campus personnel (success teams) to promote student success.” •“One of the highlights of the mapping process is the collaboration and the different perspectives of all staff members, working together to develop plan that focus on student success” •“The collaboration between faculty and counseling. I think both learn quite a bit from one another. I hope this collaboration continues”
