This is the first of a two-part webinar series focused on competency-based education program models being developed by Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grantees.

Description

With the increasing demand for postsecondary skills and credentials, and growth in the number of adults and “non-traditional” students with prior learning/experience, numerous TAACCCT programs have leveraged their grants to develop competency based education (CBE) models. In this webinar you will learn the nuts and bolts and effective strategies for implementing CBE from grantees that have engaged in this work. You will also hear about the challenges they faced and how they were able to work through them.
