In this very “advanced” conversation we talk about:
Needs assessment in the educational system; or why it seems easy to find problems, but it’s a real challenge to turn that problem into evidence of a market opportunity investors consider a worthwhile venture .
The changing landscape of the core skills sets of young people: why maybe it’s not changing fast enough, but why discussions on digital badges and “micro-credentials” are only expected to accelerate in the coming years.
Why a personalized, one-on-one approach to understanding a young professional’s expectations can be a powerful way to unlock their potential—and an amazing source of truth for employers.
Why Jodi and Leah believe there is a place for more “agents” in the educational value chain, to tackle all kinds of critical issues including apprenticeships, career management, mindset and mental health… and even school debt!
