Education Resources for UI claimants and WorkSource Customers

Sent on behalf of Washington Student Achievement Council

The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) has a new online resource: College & Career Compass is a tool that empowers adults to return to school, earn a credential, and advance in their careers.

Compass—and the Washington College Grant—are vital resources for the unprecedented number of Washingtonians who are filing for unemployment.

There are nearly one million working-aged adults in our state who have not finished the courses needed to earn a credential.

College & Career Compass will help them navigate educational pathways and get back on the path to completion. The online tool is designed to help adults return to school and finish their education. Users will:

  • Learn critical information, tips and resources for returning adult learners
  • Search for Washington educational programs and pathways
  • Connect with campuses committed to supporting adult learners’ progress.
