12 Key Components of the Learn-And-Work Ecosystem

The learn-and-work ecosystem is composed of 12 key components that must be connected and coordinated so that INDIVIDUALS can move seamlessly through the marketplace using a variety of credentials to communicate the skills and knowledge acquired in multiple settings (school, work, service, self-study); SCHOOLS can count learning obtained outside of academic settings toward a degree or other credential; EMPLOYERS have more detailed and externally-validated information for hiring, reskilling, and upskilling workers; and the PUBLIC is informed about the learn-and-work ecosystem.
