Targeted Education

When learners look for education programs that will prepare them for a career transition, they need to know that the program they choose will be worth the investment. Targeted education offers precise and relevant learning experiences that are flexible, tailored to the busy lives of working learners, and provide clear pathways to good jobs.

The postsecondary system was designed with a primary pathway in mind – from high school, to college, to a career. Today’s diverse learners need alternative pathways through education and into a career. Without those pathways, many opt out or drop out of further education.

Learners have access to targeted education tailored to their needs: the right skills, the right pathways, at the right time. They also know that the education they choose will be worth the investment—and clearly signal value to a prospective employer—time and time again across their working lives.
