Stackable Credentials: The Next Phase of Career Development

Stackable credentials refer to an accumulation of academically-based qualifications that provide verification of a small, defined set of skills and abilities which can help job-seekers be highly desirable to employers as they seek higher paying jobs or transitions to new roles.

Such credentials when later ‘stacked’ onto other credentials can also help holders to obtain a credential on the path to a full degree. For job seekers or employees, stackable credentials are valuable investments that can increase their market competitiveness and provide a tangible return-on-investment.
