What is Skill-Based Education

Skill-based learning concentrates on hands-on skill development that prepares students for a career or job.  For years, students have been directed towards college, and there has been little opportunity to learn about schools that offer skill-based learning.

Almost have of our country is interested in options other than college but is mainly aware of these incredible higher education options.  Knowing the value of these institutions,  part of Break Through Potential's mission is to broaden this understanding.  

Many of the programs offered by skill-based learning institutions place students on the same career path as college but in less time and at lower costs.  

With advancements in technology and new jobs, these institutions have evolved and potentially made students more marketable than students pursuing the traditional route right after high school.

Companies Commited to Skill-Based Learning

They offer certificates, job training, and some offer employment with the company after completing their program.

UpSkilling and ReSkilling

Upskilling is learning new skills to progress within their current role or career track. The newly acquired competencies complement an existing skillset.

Reskilling is when learning new skills that replace existing or obsolete skills.  This can prepare employees for new roles or changes in current roles.

Why These Are Important

Upskilling and reskilling improve marketability and career growth that comes with higher paying salaries.

Right now, the government is providing opportunities in the form of grants and tax benefits for individuals pursuing higher learning.  If you are concerned about financing your education, learn more about Pell Grants.
