Credentials September 16th 2015 The number of high demand jobs requiring an occupational license has grown over the past several years This shift requires changes from the education community when considering the requisite training and preparation that students will need to enter these careers A new report from the White House offers policymakers a framework for the growing field of occupational licensing as well some best practices to consider Some interesting facts More than one quarter of U S workers now require a license to do their jobs and most are licensed by their state which represents a five fold increase since the 1950s The share of licensed workers varies widely across the states from 12 percent in South Carolina to 33 percent in Iowa Differences are largely due to state policies not occupational differences across the states Also licenses are just one type of credential that students can obtain in their educational journey and with states working to meet the new Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act WIOA understanding the different types is more important than ever The Association of Career and Technical Education recently published a primer on credentials in particular the postsecondary space between high school and a two year degree Check out the full brief here Finally the two year degree attracts students of all ages but which of those age groups are most likely to continue on to earn their bachelor s degree A quick fact sheet from the American Association of Community Colleges Data Points series has the answer Source Association of
