EVENT: Is Sector-Based Training the Answer to America’s Skills Challenge?

Evidence for “what works” in job training and workforce development remains remarkably thin. The exception to this rule is sector-based training, which has been found to substantially increase employment and wages, especially for workers who might otherwise find themselves trapped in low-skill, low-wage jobs. Join AEI’s Brent Orrell and a panel of experts for a discussion exploring the keys to scaling targeted training programs effectively, including model replication, adaptable funding, and the integration of comprehensive support services such as childcare and transportation. Discover how these strategies can amplify the impact of sector-based training, creating a more dynamic and responsive workforce capable of adapting to rapidly evolving skill needs.
