Workshop: How to Ensure Upskilling for All

March 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Offered by Jobs for the Future

Upskilling and reskilling are all the rage in a world where jobs are undergoing significant changes. The challenge for employers, workers, colleges and training providers alike, however, is how to keep ahead of trends and what models for upskilling and reskilling really work. The good news is that opportunity is within reach as a set of adjacent skills provide the bridge for workers to stay relevant. The problem is workers often don’t know where or how to acquire those skills and recent data shows that fewer adult learners are enrolling or remaining in postsecondary education. During this Office Hour, we’ll examine how employers, higher education institutions, and other training providers can best serve learners in a workplace undergoing rapid transformation. Among the issues we’ll discuss, along with input from the live chat:

✅ How can learning providers and workers better identify the gaps between existing skills and the skills required in the new workplace?

✅ What is the role of an adjacent skills framework in getting workers motivated and thinking more iteratively about upskilling and reskilling?

✅ What are the ways workers can connect with learning providers and understand their various learning pathways?

✅ Where are there opportunities for employers, colleges, and training providers to better serve working learners? What sort of barriers make serving this population so hard?
