Upskilling Solutions: The Gap Between Employers and Education
"In September 2019, the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) convened a meeting of leaders and subject matter experts to identify best practices and strategies for improving access to–and completion of–upskilling programs in New England. Nearly 40 stakeholders, including employers from small and mid-sized companies, leaders of higher education institutions, policymakers in state agencies, and representatives of workforce boards and non-profit organizations participated. Their keen insights, combined with consumer data from Strada Education Network on adults’ perceived need for additional education, yielded a number of key recommendations for how New England can expand and improve successful upskilling programs and policies."
