LOS ANGELES – June 9, 2022 – InStride, leading the movement to advance social and business impact through workforce education, today announced that its Career Education Paths has been selected as “Corporate Learning Solution of the Year” in the fourth annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market.
InStride's Career Education Paths prepares learners for careers in high-demand fields such as IT, logistics, technology and healthcare. InStride designed the solution to meet the most urgent priorities corporate leaders are facing today and create tangible career opportunities for their employees.
Through analysis of industry trends and InStride’s own skills taxonomy, specifically designed, relevant and high-quality learning options support the core skills and competencies needed to achieve business objectives. InStride’s Career Education Paths enables more people to enroll in career-boosting education by addressing company-specific needs and giving employees a clear path for career advancement. This helps to align company and employee goals.
“Workforce education, when done right, promotes innovation and a strong work culture, and addresses the desire for meaningful career progress. Unfortunately, the multitude of learning solutions on the market often miss the mark when it comes to fulfilling the unique requirements of both businesses and the individual,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “InStride’s Career Education Paths elevates personalized learning to a ‘breakthrough’ level, bringing higher education and corporate leaders together in innovative ways. We are thrilled to congratulate the InStride team on winning our ‘Corporate Learning Solution of the Year’ award in the 2022 EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.”
The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, e-Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,250 nominations from over 18 different countries throughout the world.
“More than one billion people worldwide need to reskill by 2030, as jobs are transformed by emerging technologies. We remain focused on unlocking the potential of workforce education to prepare today’s workforce for tomorrow’s challenges,” said InStride CEO Vivek Sharma. “Key to preparing employees is a united, strategic effort between corporations and academic providers that ties education to in-demand, relevant skills and career mobility. InStride enables companies and academic providers to partner in innovative ways to achieve this.”
Additionally, by simplifying processes and increasing participation, InStride’s platform is optimized for ease of use by all stakeholders. InStride’s platform also closes the skills gap and combats student loan debt.
