Project Description: This project addresses the Employability/Soft Skills gap identified by both private and public sector employers by serving non-traditional students while simultaneously creating employment and educational pathways consistent with labor market needs and college developed pathways. It also provides the participating college districts with the tools to develop enhanced noncredit programs which generate the same FTES as for-credit programs. With most districts experiencing an overall decrease in the for-credit student population, this alternative funding source is vital as districts attempt to stabilize funding.
