The Center for Education & Workforce Policy (CFEWP) is working at the forefront of efforts to expand access to quality education, improve student outcomes, reimagine how instruction is delivered, align post-secondary and job-training opportunities with tomorrow’s workforce needs and plan for the challenges of an evolving global economy.
We partner with educators, policymakers, communities, and industry leaders as they increasingly focus on the challenge of ensuring all students are prepared for tomorrow’s opportunities with equitable access to a high-quality education that prepares them for the college or career path of their choice.
For those already in the workforce, our work extends well beyond the K-12 and post-secondary education systems to ensure the workforce of today has access to opportunities to develop the skills to succeed tomorrow and to advance within their careers. We work with employers, post-secondary institutions, state governments and communities to ensure workforce development programs are aligned with today’s and tomorrow’s workforce needs.
We offer experience and expertise in designing and convening productive conversations among diverse stakeholders on a wide array of complex issues in education policy and workforce development. Our projects address a range of objectives including reimagining how we recruit, retain and even structure the educator workforce, increasing access to high-quality courses and instruction that prepare students for success, supporting development of innovative learning experiences that meet the varied needs of students and fostering collaborations between the post-secondary education system and the private sector to ensure employees can develop the skills necessary to succeed in tomorrow’s workforce while advancing their own careers.
