CERTIFYING QUALITY

Quality is key to Linked Learning experiences that prepare students to succeed in college and career. Linked Learning Certification establishes clear standards for implementing the approach with fidelity. Schools with certified pathways show their dedication to continual improvement, unlock real benefits for students—and are recognized for excellence.

the process

Pathways begin as candidates, using the certification platform to collaboratively examine their pathway program and collect artifacts. Pathways progress through two levels of certification that guide pathway development, validate the work they are doing, and celebrate their successes with the community.

“The biggest benefit was the opportunity to critically assess our program. There were several elements we had and knew we did, but they were not formalized. This process allowed us to look at ways to formalize these processes and keep the program growing for our students.”
