Workforce Impact Group

Pathways to preparedness.

Workforce Impact Group

We examine programs and pathways that provide existing learners and potential workers with the skills needed by employers. We believe experiential learning and exploring emerging practices identifies more effective models for workforce readiness and career and technical education. Recently, we implemented study tours to the Pathways to Priority initiative in Peoria, Illinois and Delaware’s Pathway Story in Wilmington, Delaware. Watch the Events & Programs calendar for more tours in other locations.
