Program Description:

The need for a competent workforce is outstripping the availability in the labor market. There is also a growing realization that people can acquire the knowledge and skills required for effective performance without acquiring a formal degree. These two trends have created a movement to develop a competent workforce by focusing on teaching the job-specific skills necessary for successful job performance without acquiring additional formal educational degrees. This process is done through upskilling, teaching knowledge and skills so people can do more advanced work, and reskilling, teaching new knowledge and skills to fill jobs in different fields. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Highlight the business needs underpinning the strategy of upskilling and reskilling
  • Provide a real-life case study of how upskilling and reskilling works in business
