Financial Literacy Micro-Credential
CUES Financial Literacy Program
Central Utah Educational Services (CUES) and Utah State Board of Education (USBE), in partnership with BloomBoard and EverFi, is sponsoring a competency-based Financial Literacy micro-credential for Utah educators beginning in February of 2018.
Participants in this program will have the opportunity to complete the EverFi Financial Education Certified Teacher micro-credential as part of a collaborative national cohort of educators.
In order to earn this micro-credential, participants will have to implement one of four EVERFI courses (Vault, FutureSmart, EVERFI Financial Literacy or Venture - Entrepreneurial Expedition) with students. The micro-credential will lead educators through the implementation of these student courses. See Required micro-credential Steps on page 3 of this document for further information.
Two facilitated cohorts will be offered for this program:
Winter Cohort: 2/5 - 4/6/2018
Spring Cohort: 4/9 - 6/15/2018
Deadline for final submission in both cohorts: 6/29/2018
When determining your cohort, please take into consideration your access to students during these timeframes.
This program is free to the first 100 educators who register (across both cohorts) - please sign up here to reserve your place in this cohort!

BloomBoard is a digital platform for competency-based professional learning. To support this learning, BloomBoard offers facilitated programs around micro-credentials and collaborative spaces for discussion.
Micro-credentials are a digital form of certification indicating that an educator has demonstrated competency in a specific skill. Micro-credentials are job-embedded and promote learning by doing – to earn a micro-credential, educators must apply their learnings in their practice, collect evidence, and demonstrate their competence.
