Njie to serve four-year term on ACCSC, help set trajectory of post-secondary adult technical education in the US.
ARLINGTON, VA and PITTSBURGH, PA - April 10, 2013 - Following the recent announcement of Bidwell Training Center (BTC) as a 2012 School of Excellence, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) has bestowed another honor on this small school on Pittsburgh's North Shore. Valerie Njie, Executive Director of BTC, was recently named one of ACCSC's three newly elected commissioners.
ACCSC's motto is "making good schools better. To accomplish this, the commission establishes and maintains high educational standards and ethical business practices among its accredited career training schools and then assesses a school's compliance with those standards. Accreditation is also a means of assisting member schools to improve by requiring self-evaluation and institutional assessment and improvement activities. As a commissioner, Njie will be integral to upholding the quality of the ACCSC and guiding how the standards are applied and change to meet the needs of a rapidly evolving sector.
This distinction is the culmination of Njie's long history of involvement with ACCSC. Throughout her career with Bidwell Training Center, Njie has been one of ACCSC's most active volunteers, serving as a Team Leader on more than 70 on-site evaluations as well as serving as a member of the ACCSC Appeals Panel. Based upon her dedication to career education and her support of ACCSC's mission, Njie was selected by the Commission as the Volunteer of the Year in 2009. She is also a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Adult and Continuing Education and the Pennsylvania Association of Private School Administrators.

I look forward to serving the 800 member schools in this new capacity," says Njie.
