This white paper explores three trends for implementing competency-based learning in afterschool programs as a strategy for helping students become college and career ready. It highlights six programs in different states that are working to define competencies, and offer badges and course credit as a means of translating and validating those key skills for college and future employers.
This infographic lists the 10 categories of the NAA (National Afterschool Association) core knowledge and competencies (CKCs). The CKCs articulate what professionals need to know and be able to do for a program to be considered high quality.
