by Trista Loritz / Apr 18, 2016

Making the Future: The Wisconsin Strategy received a Round Two TAACCCT grant to develop, improve, and expand adult educational training pathways to careers in advanced manufacturing. Led by Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC), all 16 colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) set to increase the attainment of industry-recognized credentials, introduce innovative curriculum development and delivery, as well as improve employment outcomes.

A Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) grant deliverable to attract and maintain adult learners has scaled outside of the manufacturing focus to build a foundation for effective CPL policies and processes. College and state-wide discussions and knowledge building have resulted in a shared understanding and buy-in by staff, with an unprecedented CPL momentum.
