The Governor’s Office of Education and Workforce Transformation (GOEWT) has released a new progress report on Alabama’s Success Plus Credential Attainment Goal. The report was commissioned by GOEWT and was prepared by the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness.
In 2018, Governor Kay Ivey announced the Alabama Success Plus initiative recommended by the Alabama Workforce Council. The goal of Success Plus is to add 500,000 newly credentialed people to the Alabama workforce by the year 2025. As of 2021, Alabama is just under halfway to that goal with more than 214,000 Alabamians, age 16-64, having attained their first post-secondary credential. These credentials include degrees, certificates, licenses, and completed apprenticeships.
