In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Commitment to industry and employer input by creating proprietary curriculum in partnership with employers through the mapping of competencies for entry-level positions:
Once these competencies are mapped, we develop content to ensure exposure to the knowledge-domains required for those specific entry-level roles
We also create proprietary labs that require the students to demonstrate their skills in adherence to that knowledge. Students are able to obtain and refine skills commensurate with the roles they will be working in upon graduation.
We understand that it’s important for individuals to obtain higher levels of education on their pathway to success in their career. As a result, we want SecureSet to be an accelerator not a detour when it comes to higher levels of educational attainment. Through articulation we are able to achieve these goals for our students. Our programs provide up to one year of university credit in a three-five month timeframe.
SecureSet Foundation 501(c)(3):
We recognize that certain populations have more challenges entering a highly-specialized and technical field, as a result, we’ve created a foundation to equal the playing field.
This applies to all racial, socioeconomic, gender, and veteran populations
