Territorium Partners with Northwest Florida State College to Accelerate Skills-Based Education and Hiring

by Eric Stoller

Revolutionizing Student Achievement: Territorium and Northwest Florida State College Unveil Industry-Certified Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) with Digital Badging and Credential Wallet

Territorium is proud to announce a groundbreaking partnership with Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC) to scale skills-based education and hiring practices in the Panhandle. 

“NWFSC’s investment in Territorium’s LifeJourney solution marks a pivotal step in transforming how our students are educated, trained, and hired,” said Dr. Devin Stephenson, President of Northwest Florida State College. “This cutting-edge initiative is crucial for enhancing the College system’s capability to prepare students for the future workforce, today.”

LifeJourney is an all-in-one solution that empowers students to own, transmit, and map their learning to the job of their dreams. It includes a Learning and Employment Record (LER), a skills-first digital wallet, AI-powered career pathways with job-matching technology, and a Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) of achievement. 

“This partnership underscores our commitment to both industry–by guaranteeing a work-ready employee–and our students, by way of an unprecedented return on their investment,” said Dr. Henry Mack, Vice President for Academic Affairs at NWFSC. “By empowering students to own, document, verify, badge, and transmit all of the skills they acquire here at NWFSC, the college is setting a new standard for higher education, student success, and employability.”

Students will have full ownership of their educational progress and skills acquisition in a way that reflects the needs of the modern workforce. The traditional college transcript, a 19th-century artifact, is long overdue for transformation. This partnership will change how students’ transcripts are managed by effectively validating and credentialing skills (including extra/co-curricular skills)throughout their educational experience.

Furthermore, this partnership is a catalyst for change in the hiring landscape. It advocates for a shift towards skills-based hiring, where verified skills are the key to success. This strategic approach addresses workforce gaps and the growing demand for job-ready talent, placing students and employers at the forefront of this educational movement.

Territorium’s LifeJourney solution offers a comprehensive approach to solving workforce challenges. Integrating career planning with skills mapping ensures that students are prepared for real-world demands. This partnership ensures that NWFSC students are educated and job-ready, aligning educational outcomes with industry needs.

“We are excited to partner with Northwest Florida State College to connect their learners to careers using verified skills,” said Guillermo Elizondo, CEO of Territorium. 

“Our secure, interoperable CLR and digital credential wallet empower students to document and manage their skills and overall competencies, making them more attractive to potential employers. Territorium’s partnership with Northwest Florida State College is a game-changer for education and workforce development.”
