Academic institutions need high-quality, competency-based, skills training that accelerates their transition to more flexible, sustainable options for faculty and learners.
The course of the American community college has changed
Over the past year and a half, 180 Skills has worked closely with academic institutions across the country, helping them make career-aligned skills training integral to their educational offerings.
The Path Forward initiative represents our commitment to applying what we’ve learned to help an even greater number of educators.
During this time together we have:
- Shifted learning from ground-based to 100% online delivery
- Transitioned from curricula-based programming to skills-based, career-aligned programming
- Ensured that all learning is 100% accessible online
It’s time to navigate towards skills-based education
While the pandemic has taken post-secondary education delivery in a new direction, employers are starting to shift their hiring practices to focus more on skills than degrees.
Schools must adapt their workforce education programs to meet the needs of the employers and learners in the communities they serve—or risk getting left behind.
By partnering with 180 Skills, your institution can easily and affordably make career-aligned online skills training part of its educational offerings.
We provide high-quality, short-term skills training that gets learners into middle-skills jobs in weeks, not months.
Job-Specific Skills Courses
We offer nearly 800 competency-based skills courses that teach essential technical and non-technical skills.
We provide asynchronous, self-paced training that can shift ground-based learning models to 100% online delivery.
The Path Forward Offering
Through the Path Forward initiative, we are offering to our current and future college partners the opportunity to have access to the 180 Skills library of more than 780 competency-based, credit-aligned, skills training courses at a cost of $20 per-learner, per-year.
