ABE to Credential: Accelerating Opportunity

Accelerating OpportunityDescription

The ABE to Credential Project will enhance student success by outlining how the state would effectively bridge all transitions starting from Adult Basic Skills through completion of Career Technical Education career pathways certificate programs and on to employment or higher-level educational credentials.


Through innovative adult education that provides a valuable credential, this four-year, multistate initiative seeks to fundamentally:

  • Change the way Adult Basic Education is structured and delivered at the state and institutional levels
  • Ensure that state policies encourage dramatically improved results in terms of the number of individuals who complete credentials of value in the labor market
  • Substantially increase the number of adults who can earn a GED and a credential and enter the workplace with competitive skills
