New Department of Labor (DOL) Competency Model Resources

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Competency Model Clearinghouse has released three new resources aimed at assisting with developing competency-based approaches to education and workforce development. Resources include the How-To Crosswalk Competency Models for Curriculum Development Video Series, the Customizing Competency Models through Convening Guide, and the U.S. DOL Competency Model Peer Learning Group. These resources highlight real-life experiences and examples, offer tips and tools, and provide a forum for peers to discuss their own competency model efforts. They are housed on the LMI Central community.

Video Series: How to Crosswalk Competency Models with Curriculum: A six-part video series that highlights the real experiences of community colleges using competency models to enrich their curricula, improve their student outcomes, and strengthen their relationships with area employers.

The Customizing Competency Models Through Convening Guide also helps you prepare to engage with employers to define competencies and develop training.  The guide provides a variety of resources, ready-to-use tools, and examples of successful regional partnerships to help as you engage in the process of convening partners to customize a competency model.

If you are interested in learning more about competency models and connecting with others in the field, join the U.S. DOL Competency Model Peer Learning Group. The PLG is an opportunity to learn about the experiences of fellow workforce development practitioners while expanding your network and finding new resources.
