Innovate+Educate is a systems change entity.
We consult and implement strategies with communities, workforce partners and employers on the shift to competency and skills-based education and employment.  Our tools include assessments, navigation, and learning tools that allow this shift.



The working learner population is 1.3 times larger than the traditional learner population (meaning, full-time students working less than 20 hrs a week.) The learning worker population is 4.5 times larger. Together, the two populations are enormous drivers of change in higher education. The report elevates the need for just-in-time, bite-sized learning that makes sense for someone working and learning at the same time.

Our Mission

To create new employment pathways for workers based on skills and competencies.

Our vision

To strengthen our workforce by "filtering in" and providing access to training and employment aligned to high demand jobs.


Innovate+Educate’s assess / hire / train / advance framework implements evidence-based, employer-led strategies to drive competency and skills based hiring and training for in-demand jobs.

Our framework is fueling a nationwide adoption of new industry-driven, competency-based hiring processes critical to creating pathways to employment for the many workers struggling or left behind in the current education-to-employment system.
