District 1199C Training and Upgrading Fund
“All Learning Counts” Program Manager, Application Deadline Sept. 30
Position Summary: The primary responsibility of the Program Manager is to manage student enrollment into, progress through, and completion of college credit-conferring coursework under the umbrella of the “All Learning Counts” initiative of the District 1199C Training & Upgrading Fund. “All Learning Counts” is a Lumina Foundation-funded national initiative to support projects which award college credit for “non-traditional” learning.
The District 1199C Training Fund – a non-profit, labor-management workforce development partnership – will work with our union partner (District 1199C Hospital & Health Care Workers, AFSCME, AFL-CIO) and Mountwest Community & Technical College to develop and grow an industry-contextualized degree completion program for our affiliated union members and, eventually, other workers and jobseekers. Building on our experience in the apprenticeship system, the Training Fund will work with Mountwest to award college credit, leading to Associate’s Degrees in Allied Health, for a combination of: classroom instruction, work-based and on-the-job learning, demonstrated prior experience/competency mastery, and career-informed portfolio development/assessment. Mountwest will verify the quality of the Training Fund’s curricula and assessments, including assessments of work experience, up-front and prior to certifying the Training Fund as a partner qualified to recommend the application of transcript credit. All Mountwest degree credits will articulate fully with Health Information, Healthcare Administration, and other Bachelor’s programs at Philadelphia’s Peirce College.
The Training Fund and Mountwest are part of a growing coalition of unions and labor-management partnerships working nationwide to resurrect some of the best work of the National Labor College in making quality distance education and credit for non-traditional, non-institutional learning available to working people across the US. The Training Fund will have a major role to play in expanding this partnership through our network peer education/training funds in the health sector.
Administrative duties, especially data tracking and reporting, are also included as part of the position. The position also involves travel to employer and partner sites, some of which are more easily reached by car.
