Parchment + Quottly: How We are Turning Credentials Into Opportunities, Together
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the Parchment team has put a spotlight on helping schools and universities maintain business continuity with respect to ordering, fulfilling, and delivering credentials.
Our team is currently focused on three initiatives we’re proud to share with you. Ultimately, they focus on the service of supporting learners, a guiding principle we’re passionate about.
Colleges and universities have responded quickly and adapted even faster – adjusting admissions dates and changing undergraduate and graduate program requirements. Nevertheless, schools are experiencing low turnout to remote-advising meetings. This leaves us to speculate that learners may be feeling discouraged or disconnected. Without physically walking school halls, immersed in the promise of new and exciting beginnings, some students may be stalling, afraid to take the next step. BUT their futures still await them – that’s where we step in!
Over the coming weeks, we plan to send a brief email series* encouraging high school and college students to keep moving forward with their pursuit of college and career progression, take the necessary next steps, and create momentum surrounding common upcoming opportunities. Furthermore, be prepared with an official transcript on hand, ready to turn credentials into opportunities.
We’ve planned communication covering the topics below and have reviewed them with a number of our members. We’re eager to hear from you on the positive impact this effort will have in supporting learners throughout all levels of education.
Our thoughts continue to be with the community we serve and the health and well being of each student, staff member, and their families. Stay connected and be well. Let’s continue to make the future bright.
