Three opportunities for Linked Learning students and pathways to be recognized for their achievements.
The Linked Learning Alliance has set a goal: 1 million students in Linked Learning certified pathways by 2030. This goal reflects the critical role certification plays in the Linked Learning movement. When pathways begin their certification journey, they underscore the revolutionary change taking place in their high school, and schools around the country. Scaling Linked Learning through certification shows how real, relevant opportunities to explore industry through work-based learning, authentic assessment, and integrated curricula in a supportive academic environment can change the trajectory of a young person’s future.
