A First Look at Gold Certification

Linked Learning integrates academics aligned to college-ready requirements with sequenced, high-quality career-technical education, work-based learning, and comprehensive student supports. Pathways gain Silver certification when they establish the core components of Linked Learning, and achieve Gold certification when they demonstrate proficiency with instruction, curriculum, and assessment aligned with these components.

Certification is a solution for the Linked Learning field ensuring that the massive increase in scale of pathways is accompanied by a commitment to pathway quality. Together these web-based tools support the Linked Learning field’s commitment to pathway quality, collaboration, and continuous improvement. 

With 12 Gold pathways in California and hundreds of Silver-certified pathways striving for Gold, the launch of the new standards will help drive continuous improvement across the Linked Learning field.
