A healthy education infrastructure requires a close link between education and employers. Our modern, varied workforce landscape and diverse talent population require educational opportunities in equally varied and diverse forms. WTEA saw the need for a quality assurance process that respects those differences while ensuring excellence in career preparation.
The WTEA evaluates excellence in career-building education with a focus on rigorous assessment of workforce outcomes and skill development rather than regulating the mode of instruction or curriculum, freeing institutions to find what works best for their learners and employer partners. Our Workforce Success Standards
and Career Impact Audits
are quality assurance metrics for programs that pursue excellence in preparing learners for meaningful work.
Join us in our mission to support employers, career-building learners, and educators to work together to a more prosperous future!
