CLASP Releases Shared Vision, Strong Systems: The Alliance for Quality Career Pathways Framework Version 1.0

The Alliance, or AQCP, is a partner-driven, CLASP-led initiative funded by the Joyce Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, and the Greater Twin Cities United Way. The Alliance’s goal is to help state and local/regional partnerships strengthen their career pathway systems. In 2012, CLASP invited ten leading career pathway states—Arkansas, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin— and their local/regional partners to join Phase I of the Alliance (2012-2014). CLASP and the Alliance partners jointly developed and provided consensus support for the Alliance for Quality Career Pathways Framework 1.0, which establishes a common understanding of quality career pathways and systems. The Alliance framework provides a clear set of criteria and indicators for what constitutes a quality state and local/regional career pathway system, as well as metrics to assess participant progress and success. The framework is designed to help career pathway partners continuously improve their systems. It also can serve as a collaborative, comprehensive strategy for policymakers and funders to align and enhance their investments, technical assistance, and guidance for building, scaling, and sustaining career pathway systems. Dr. Darlene Miller, NCWE Executive Director, and Dr. Nan Poppe, NCWE Lifetime Member served on the National Advisory Group for AQCP.

NCWE Voted 8th Highest Performing Workforce Development
Nonprofit by National Nonprofit Organization

Philanthropedia surveyed 103 workforce development experts with an average of 17 years of experience in the field to identify nonprofits that were the highest performing on a national level. Experts were asked to recommend up to four nonprofits and up to two promising start-up nonprofits, and were asked to comment on each nonprofit's impact, other organizational strengths, and how each organization could further improve. 181 organizations were considered with the experts identifying the 16 top nonprofits. NCWE is proud to have been chosen as the 8th highest performing workforce development nonprofit.

Also rated in the top 16 were our colleagues at National Skills Coalition, The Aspen Institute, Center for Law and Social Policy, Jobs for the Future, Jewish Vocational Service, Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, Corporation for a Skilled Workforce, and National Council of La Raza.
