Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, and Monster Government Solutions today announced a partnership designed to improve workforce readiness and job placement for students at private sector and career colleges. Through a new suite of products and services, the companies will provide real-time labor data and analytics solutions to help these institutions ensure their course offerings and programs match the occupations, skills, knowledge, certifications, work experience or education levels in demand by employers.
The solutions will include custom reports, research briefs and on-demand research, including aggregated and detailed real-time supply and demand data that supplement the analytics efforts of local and state governments. Private sector and career institutions will be able to request reports based on job opportunities in a given field and geographic location. Based on the data, Pearson will work with institutions to develop curriculum or modify their existing curriculum to reflect market demand.
“Private sector and career colleges have greatly increased access to quality online higher education, enabling the 3.8 million students that attend these schools to gain the skills needed by employers,” said Lee Ramsayer, Senior Vice President of Sales for Monster Government Solutions. “By partnering with Pearson, we’re able to create solutions that help these institutions better analyze market conditions so that they can align curricula with strategic skills requirements.”
“Higher education leaders are facing many unique challenges and opportunities in this economy,” said Don Kilburn, CEO of Pearson Learning Solutions. “Pearson’s collaboration with Monster Government Solutions offers private sector and career colleges an innovative approach to meeting these issues head-on, with data they can use to implement effective programs that set their students on the path to career success.”
