We have all heard about the impact of changing demographics and increasing skills requirements on businesses and employees. We know the skills demanded within workplaces will continue to change and this can create skills gaps. Advancing Workplace Learning (AWL) is about helping employers find manageable ways to develop their own skills and the skills of their workforce. Employers can enhance workplace practices through Workplace Literacy and Essential Skills (WLES).
The Bay Area Workforce Funding Collaborative (BAWFC) is a nationally recognized initiative, led by local and national foundations, to address the skills gap that leaves too many job-seekers and workers in poverty while employers are unable to meet needs for a skilled workforce. Launched in 2004, the BAWFC seeks to enhance economic competitiveness and reduce poverty by strengthening the ability of the workforce development system to meet the needs of employers and low-skilled adults.
