Beyond The Skills Gap
The shifting dynamics of the job market in terms of continual learning demands that schools consider new types of credentials to better communicate the skills and learning of their graduates to employers.
In many schools, the impetus for additional education is to gain knowledge and abilities that employers find valuable. What is changing is the way those skills are acquired.
When working with non-traditional students, educators discover that adult learners are fundamentally different than younger learners. Instructors must figure out how best to reach students with different demands, challenges and expectations. How can educators’ best prepare adult learners for employability?
The concept of offering certification credentials that empower students and link your training program to concepts of employability are paramount.
Schools need diverse and efficient packages of credentials to measure the skills of the next generation of workers.
