The Mysteries and Myths around Workforce Credentialing – Back to the Roots or Fast Forward to the Future?

Workforce Credentialing has evolved as a term, especially in the Certification world, over the last few years and is hailed by some as the key to addressing the limitations of certification in a broader competency evaluation approach. Others see it as a kind of modern-day version of Boy Scout badging. This workshop will engage participants in a discussion around how to leverage a Workforce Credentialing approach which adds value and address some provocative questions, such as:

  • Do we have a common understanding of Workforce Credentialing?
  • Is Workforce Credentialing as it stands today just taking us back to the concept of Boy Scout badges or will it evolve to bridge the growing divide between the personalised learning experience and the more rigid Certification experience?
  • Will badging replace certification?
  • Does Workforce Credentialing add value or just ‘dumb down’ Certification?
  • These and other questions will form the basis of a frank discussion around the future evolution of Workforce Credentialing, giving organisations an opportunity to make their voices heard on where to add value.
