Investment Focus Areas

21st Century Skills

21st century skills are tools that can be universally applied to enhance ways of thinking, learning, working and living in the world. These skills include critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, collaboration, communication, global citizenship, and information, media and technology literacy.

Preparation for the Workforce

Workforce preparation includes activities, programs or services designed to help an individual acquire a combination of basic academic skills, critical thinking skills, digital literacy skills and self-management skills, including competencies in utilizing resources, using information, working with others, understanding systems and obtaining skills necessary for successful transition into and completion of postsecondary education or training, or employment.

Alternative Pathways

Alternative pathways in education are alternative means of obtaining educational qualifications, other than the traditional means of gaining access to or completing the required study to obtain the educational qualifications.

Future of Work

The future of work is a projection of how work, workers and the workplace will evolve in the years ahead. There are varying components that experts have outlined in models explaining the future of work, but the three basic elements are: how the work is done, who does the work, and where and when work is done
