Creating the Learning Engine of the Future
The IOLC is founded to ensure that the technical skills students and employees learn are the ones industry needs and are hiring for, now, and in the future. The IOLC is an independent non-profit backed by major industry players, non-profits, and Universities who collaborate to create an engine that defines the skills needed for technical roles, to put curriculum in market, hires and advances people who complete the learning and measures the outcomes.
In 2016, 40 percent of employers and 65 percent of global CIO’s reported that skills shortages were having a negative impact on their business.
If the solution were as simple as adding computer science classes, increasing capacity at universities, additional industry investment in training and certification, or providing access to learning via the Internet, the Skills Gap would not be the widest it has ever been.
The IOLC brings industry, universities, non-profits together to build a learning network that keeps pace with rapidly evolving technology and measures learners outcomes and workplace impact.
IOLC is the premiere industry led institution comprised of members who are the respected leaders in the technical world. These leaders are entrenched in the challenges facing the workplace every day, and bring a unique and astute perspective to the task of effectively solving the job market puzzle. They are committed to bringing industry together to build a learning network to solve the technical skills gap. They are working together to provide a win for employees, job seekers and employers alike.
