Presents a case study of Maryland’s Skills2Compete Initiative, a campaign aimed at increasing post-secondary success to strengthen Maryland’s workforce.
The case study described how Skills2Compete (S2C) Maryland brought together a diverse group of public programs to increase the number of Marylanders who attain post-secondary credentials. The report also provided “a set of recommendations for next steps based on interviews and an assessment conducted by the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce. In addition to recommendations, the case study summarized the history of the S2C initiative, including its strategies and processes, offered an assessment of common themes from interviews with members of the Interagency Workforce Committee responsible for jointly implementing the initiative’s goals, and provided further detail on the recommendations and actions needed to reach the S2C goal” (p. 6).
