Excellence in career-building education.
WTEA accreditation standards are based on outcomes and results, not inputs, leaving programs free to innovate while ensuring the highest rigour in quality assurance.
Programs must display all program requirements, policies, and required workforce outcomes prominently on the program or institution website.
Programs must use effective assessment techniques to ensure knowledge and skill acquisition is in line with advancement through the curriculum.
Programs must track and report graduate employment outcomes: in-field job placement rate, beginning salary, earnings at 1, 3, and 5 years, and program ROI.
Student Success Assessment
Programs must track and report student success outcomes: graduation rate, stop-out points, and loan repayment.
Programs must maintain state registration, good financial standing, and other governance procedures to ensure quality operations.
WTEA has not sought recognition for its accreditation from the US Department of Education. WTEA accreditation will not confer institutional eligibility for participation in Federal Student Aid Programs.
WTEA Accreditation will provide a quality signal to students, parents, employers, and stakeholders that your educational program prepares students for career success in their field.
we will invite our first member schools to participate in accreditation in 2022.
