How to remove language as a barrier to industry partnerships


Access the recording

Historically, higher education has used the language of majors, CIP codes, and GPAs to describe learning and academic achievement. But employers today are primarily interested in the skills an individual has and is ready to apply in the workplace. By adopting the same skill-based language, colleges and universities can make the value of their academic programs more transparent to learners and employers alike.

In this webinar, learn how Tri-County Technical College is breaking through the education-to-employer language barrier by identifying and tagging the in-demand skills taught in their courses and programs. You’ll see examples of how Tri-County is using Lightcast skills data to accomplish this goal, and the impact it’s having for their students and employer partners.
