Universal talent passports have the potential to spark mass LER/CLR adoption by providing a standardized and universally recognized way for individuals to showcase their skills and credentials. A universal talent passport is a digital or paper document that lists an individual’s skills, qualifications, and achievements, as well as their work experience and education.
The benefits of universal talent passports include:
- Standardization: A universal talent passport provides a standardized format for listing an individual’s skills and qualifications, which can be recognized by schools, employers, and other organizations around the world.
- Portability: A universal talent passport can be easily shared and accessed online, making it easier for individuals to showcase their skills and qualifications to potential employers and educational institutions.
- Accessibility: Universal talent passports can be used by people of all backgrounds and abilities, regardless of their education or work experience.
- Continuous Learning: Universal talent passports can also be used to track an individual’s ongoing learning and development, encouraging a culture of continuous learning and development.
However, while universal talent passports can be a useful tool for showcasing skills and qualifications, they alone may not be enough to spark mass LER/CLR adoption. To achieve this, a comprehensive and integrated approach is required, which includes not only the use of universal talent passports but also the development of affordable, accessible, and high-quality LER/CLR programs and certifications.
Furthermore, widespread adoption of universal talent passports would require the cooperation and support of schools, employers, and other organizations, as well as the development of common standards and best practices for their use.
