Educating the next generation is a race against technology. People will need new skills as intelligent machines and systems change the nature of work.
With the increasing need for people in the field of technology, large corporations are testing lifelong learning methods. Still, traditional education and learning systems are ineffective and unsuited to the challenges of the new skills generation. Organizations with smaller sizes are more likely to be at risk if they fail to apply new learning techniques. There could also be significant economic repercussions.
The Chicago Apprenticeship Network was created in 2017 by Accenture and Aon. They aimed to provide underserved communities with more opportunities for high-paying tech jobs. Because of this commitment, Accenture is collaborating with Udacity to create a program that trains students to become employable.
