Policy Trends and Resources that support adult students

The National Skills Coalition (NSC) was founded more than 15 years ago by a coalition of advocates including community college leaders, workforce boards, adult educators from community-based non-profit organizations, business leaders, labor unions, and labor-management partnerships—really a broad array of advocates. What they all have in common was the belief that access to high-quality education and training opportunities is important in helping individuals gain access to middle-skill jobs. Equally important is ensuring that businesses have workers who are trained to meet the skill needs that actually exist in local communities. Dr. Anjalé Welton interviewed Amanda Bergson-Shilcock, the Director of Upskilling Policy at the National Skills Coalition, about policy trends and resources that support adult learners. The summary of the interview is linked here.
