The Workforce Almanac: A System-Level View of U.S. Workforce Training Providers by Alexis Gable, Tessa Forshaw, Rachel Lipson, and Nathalie Gazzaneo, outlines our process for building the Workforce Almanac new dataset.
The Workforce Almanac is a first-of-its-kind initiative that aims to help us move away from a siloed conception of workforce development training provision and towards a new, integrated idea of the sector that puts the worker front and center.
In this first iteration of the Workforce Almanac, we have mapped almost 17,000 providers of workforce training, which we have defined as short-term (lasting less than two years), post-high school training opportunities in which learners gain work-relevant skills to help them find a job.
Using our data portal, you can see how these workforce training providers are spread geographically across the US, and view their names, addresses, and types. Find the Data Portal at https://workforcealmanac.com/.
