President Obama’s upskill initiative

The President’s Upskill initiative is focused on realizing the full potential of America’s workforce by empowering Americans with the education and training they need to develop new skills and earn higher wages. Some front-line workers may be just starting their careers, while some may be older workers who don’t have the basic skills to allow them to take on more responsibility and reach higher paying roles. Others could also be workers who may have the competencies, but not formal credentials, to excel at a more senior-level job. This report focuses on central questions that are driving the work of the initiative to help more Americans “upskill”.
