Oregon Credentials, Acceleration, and Support for Employment (CASE)

CASE is a statewide collaboration that includes all 17 community colleges, the Oregon Employment Department/Trade Act, employers, and community partners. The project's "three C" strategies will expand and enhance Career Pathways as a vehicle to increase credential completion and accelerate time to completion; use Career Coaches to reduce barriers so that students enroll, persist, complete a credential, and secure employment in a demand occupation; and launch development of a “portable” approach to granting Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) for students and workers across the state. Emphasis will be placed on improving coordination with Oregon's Trade Act representatives and the public workforce providers. To that end, TAA state leadership will sit on the CASE Leadership Team to address barriers for the state's 18,500 TAA-affected individuals.
