Reach Cyber Charter School, a Pennsylvania statewide online public charter school, announced today that it is making career development a top priority and preparing students for the future with a new digital credential offering through Credly.
Reach Cyber students will have the opportunity to build a digital portfolio of their experiences and certifications by earning badges in six pathways: Arts and Communications, Business Administration, STEM, Health Science, Human Services, and Information Technology.
“We are dedicated to equipping our students with the tools they need to achieve professional success,” said Jane Swan, CEO of Reach Cyber Charter School. “That’s why we have partnered with Credly. It can be difficult to articulate your skills in a series of bullet points on a resume. This new service will provide students with a web-enabled, verifiable version of industry certifications, which will help them enhance their resumes, digital portfolios, and LinkedIn pages.”
"We are seeing companies across a variety of industries turn to skills-based hiring as a way to more readily identify and connect with qualified candidates," said Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO of Credly. "Reach Cyber Charter School is providing an invaluable tool in the form of a verified record of their students' knowledge and skills. These early digital credentials will serve Reach Cyber students over the course of their burgeoning careers."
