As of 2021, over 1 million unique credentials were used to describe learning & inform labor market decision-making. They include everything from the more formal degrees, diplomas, & licenses to the less formal but increasingly more common digital badges & online course completions.
While this explosive growth in unique credentials corresponds to the need for more flexible accreditation pathways for individual workers & learners, the lack of interoperability amongst accrediting bodies creates significant barriers for individuals who must prove what they know and can do and for frontline providers who must make dynamic decisions based on near real-time talent data.
