Preparing Learners for Today’s Workforce

 Lisa Hawk

Lisa Hawk, director of corporate training and business development at Forsyth Technical Community College, joined us last fall at the ACT Workforce Summit. We asked her to share how digital badging helps individual job seekers and the workforce at large in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina, community succeed. 

“We utilize digital badging to recognize that individuals come into us already with skills that are appropriate for the workforce. And, we utilize digital badging to assist them in gaining employment immediately, while they are working on earning additional skills that will enhance their income so that they have a sustainable wage for themselves and their families.” 

Lisa goes on to say that Forsyth Technical Community College aligns their training, the ACT WorkKeys assessment, and employer needs to ensure their learners have the technology-based skills their employer partners demand.
