Skills4Industry institutions are driven by excellence in their respective fields. Combined with Skills4Industry K-12 programs, non-degree awarding professional and trades pathways programs, our undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. degree-awarding institutions provide a structured climbing frame to individuals globally. Two criteria are used to measure the quality of Skills4Industry educational institutions, these are students’ destinations and distance traveled. We have designed complex dynamics of tools around these measures to ensure successful outcomes. The student’s destinations and distance traveled quality measures help focus learning on students through centers of excellence initiatives. Skills4Industry centers of excellence initiatives are research-driven and designed to focus resources on identified learner destinations globally. Skills4Industry institutions are built on the world’s largest integrative competence data containing over 3.6 million concepts in over 200,000 functional tasks across occupations in all industries. Our integrative competence concepts data architecture sources are students’ destination-centric to ensure reinforcement of practical skills through continuous updates. Skills4Industry institutions and schools are designed to help students identify a field of interest and focus their studies on functional responsibilities for work, entrepreneurship, and creative performances.
