What’s the Real Transformation Underway in Industry?
Enter the education-to-employment movement. Using project-based learning, students learn in the methods in which they will be working. Innovators leading this revolution call this “outcomes-based education.” This is an industry that is just beginning to recognize the steep challenges ahead.
IBM has been in the forefront of working with universities like Neumont University to identify the skills required for jobs they need to fill in the future. In exchange for helping ensure graduates are equipped for employment, IBM commits to hiring a number of them who demonstrate proficiency in the required skills.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel launched College to Careers (C2C) to “ensure Chicagoans are prepared for careers in growing fields and are able to seize the tens of thousands of new job openings over the next decade. The C2C program forges partnerships between City Colleges and industry leaders to better align City Colleges’ curricula with the demand in growing fields. These partnerships provide City Colleges’ students access to real-world experience via teacher-practitioners, internships and top-notch facilities, and offer City Colleges’ students and graduates a first pass at job opportunities.”
