Workforce Academy

The Workforce Academy was created to expand capacity and adaptability in and around workforce and education systems.  The Academy’s learning products and services reflect the knowledge and experience of ecosystem stakeholders, as well as digital government and technology industry experts. Planners and doers, decision-makers and implementers, ecosystem professionals and partners – all will find resources to inform and advance their work.

America needs a system built for the twenty-first century, one that can anticipate rapid change and adapt its behavior to produce better outcomes for citizens. Every day new needs, data, practices, and technologies present opportunities for these systems to learn and apply new ways of working to meet customer demands and excel at satisfying their charge. To do this, workforce system organizations and professionals must transform from the inside out. It is difficult to know where and how to begin. But what is clear - the time for change is now - and the Workforce Academy can help.
