Pennsylvania Prior Learning Assessment & Stackable Credentials Program

This proposal allows the fourteen community colleges to leverage the initial Department of Labor investment by adding important applications to the shared framework, which were identified by the Think Tank as priority service areas for expansion of adult student success rates: A more robust Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process, promoted to adult students, in order to give both TAAimpacted workers a head start on attainment of credentials and an off-set for the time some will need to spend in remedial education; and, New Entrepreneurship and Business Principles curriculum to be embedded in the training for Round I industry sectors (Advanced Manufacturing, Energy, and Healthcare Technology) and deployed statewide, as we recognize that today's workplace requires a high level of self-direction and network building.
