This event is Part 1 of a webinar series on “Connecting Education and Jobs in Florida.” Click here to view Part 2.
Over 60% of future jobs will require some form of postsecondary education or training, but what are the skills needed to fill this demand? What about the various credentials, including college degrees, postsecondary certificates and industry certifications, that can ensure Florida’s workforce has the skills necessary to be prepared for such jobs?
Join Florida CAN and Jeff Strohl, Director of Research with Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, to learn more about the variety of postsecondary credentials and why some are more valuable in our evolving economy.
During the webinar, we will also learn about the Center’s new estimates of Florida workers who hold a postsecondary certificate that appeared in Lumina Foundation’s Stronger Nation report, and leave ample time for questions to continue the conversation about credentials that many are having in your communities throughout the state.
This is the first of a series of webinars that Florida CAN will be offering throughout the year to help education and community stakeholders learn more about college degrees and credentials, future workforce trends, the supply and demand of different postsecondary credentials and resources that can help students connect to high-skilled, high-paying jobs.
