What is SkillSPAN?

SkillSPAN is the state action arm of National Skills Coalition. We’re the first and only national network of multi-stakeholder coalitions that develop and promote skills policies. We connect workforce experts and skills advocates across states, amplify their collective voice in state capitals, and inspire action at the federal level – all to help people get jobs that reflect their career aspirations, to help business find skilled workers, and help states build strong, inclusive economies.
