I’m an employer
As a corporate leader, you know well that to keep pace with the rapid evolution of knowledge and shifts in the way we educate, learn and work, we must continuously adapt and innovate. The need for more work-integrated learning opportunities is even more important given skills shortages, exacerbated by COVID-19.
