Developing Human Capital
Work Readiness, Soft Skills, Contextualized, Learning and Credentials. As we explore the key issues and trends shaping the current job market, we also need to evaluate how these trends impact the education community and identify the obstacles ahead. A commitment to workforce development requires focusing our attention on providing industry-specific skills that enhance critical thinking, reasoning, problem solving, and teamwork. When career credentials and industry-specific certifications are transportable, transferable, and stackable, then our students will succeed in the workforce.
