Rethinking the Future Urban Workforce – New Education, Human Capital and Skill Building Models
What does the future urban workforce look like? How do cities support learning for everyone? Some high schools and community colleges are taking a different approach which combines skills — and in some cases going beyond skill-based training. How do we prepare a workforce for economies that change fast, perhaps even every decade? Will formal education models still exist in 15 or 20 years? What are some of the new “advancement models” that don’t follow the classical approach? Hear from leaders in multiple sectors who are creating better methods and building stronger bridges between formal learning organizations, governments, the private sector, and non-profits.
