Earning Credit for Work Experience: A Guide to Job Experiences of CETA-Funded Employees.
Wisconsin Univ., Green Bay.
This guidebook is written for those who question the process of earning credit for experience and what knowledge and skills might lead to a credit award, and should assist educators who are approached for accreditation of knowledge and skills learned on a Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA)-funded job. There are five sections: the first explains what CETA is, how it operates, the CETA structure, and answers to questions often asked about CETA; the second explores the value of a credential and how it can benefit someone seeking a job or a promotion; the third gives examples of CETA work experience that high school students might have and how that experience could be made creditable; the fourth discusses the process of earning postsecondary credit for work experience and lists some ingredients of creditable experiential learning; the fifth gives examples of CETA work experience that hold potential for a credit award from a technical institute or college. The ultimate decision of what is and is not creditable is made by the educational institution. For information on the policies followed by Wisconsin's educational institutions when assessing experiential learning, the reader is referred to the companion guidebook, Granting Credit for Work Experience.
