Integrated Education and Training Policy 50-State Scan

By Amanda Bergson-Shilcock, December 14, 2016

Integrated education and training policies address the challenge of helping individuals who have basic skill gaps to qualify for middle-skill jobs. These policies encourage the adoption of program models that allow people to develop or refresh basic skills such as math, reading, or spoken English while simultaneously training for a in-demand occupation or industry. Integrated education and training policies are among a set of “skills equity” policies being promoted by National Skills Coalition (NSC). NSC has scanned each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia to identify which states have the policies in place.
