Bridging the Workforce Skills Gap through Competency-Based Education

ATD 2014 Session: W200
Paul LeBlanc | May 06, 2014 | Video

This panel will examine one of the most critical workforce development trends: helping employers close skills gaps and develop internal talent. Through the perspective of a business unit President, a former leading federal policy-maker, and the founder of one of the nation's leading nonprofit Competency-Based Education degree programs, they will discuss how to build promotable skills within a frontline workforce using a new higher education model that focuses on developing employee competencies instead of traditional higher education 'credit hours.' They will share what lessons emerged from a 2013 pilot program that College for America launched with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and 20 other employers across the nation. Attendees will learn what competencies translate most directly to building promotable skills and developing internal talent across industries, and how a re-structured higher education model can provide more accountability to delivering these skills. The session will provide concrete steps business leaders and training managers can take to maximize their existing tuition reimbursement benefits and best impact their workforce development needs.
