Brooke Istas, the moderator for the Correctional Education community, recently posted the report, "Nondegree Credentials in Correctional Education", published by the U.S. Department of Education. I am planning to read it over and think more about how the Career Pathways community can support our colleagues in Correctional Education to help this community of learners benefit from credentials leading to career pathways.
I invite you to join Brooke and I in considering how these non-degree certificates can be linked to pathways supporting inmates, both while incarcerated, and post-release. Many career pathways programs work with former inmates, so this is relevant to us all. What are you seeing in your programs from former inmates who are enrolled in your career pathways programs? What are the challenges and successes in working with this population of learners?
We hope that you will join us. You can access the full report here: "Nondegree Credentials in Correctional Education".
