Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
As the financial market looks for a sign of progression in the market, states in the Mid-Atlantic are hoping for the same window of opportunity. As these states deal with rebuilding in Super Storm Sandy areas businesses are looking to cut cost and get back to “business as usual”. This opportunity is designed to relieve the financial pressures and help further usher in progress in the region.
The National Education Foundation created a unique training program for businesses and individuals. NEF is prepared to offer 5,000 scholarships for those individuals who are ready to return to the workforce with 21st century skills. The Business Training Program will utilize top-rated Web-based online courses and live teachers to provide anywhere, anytime training in all areas of IT, Business and Management. The employees will also receive certificates from the State University of New York (http://www.nefuniversity.org ). Dr. Appu Kuttan, Chairman of the National Education Foundation (NEF) CyberLearning, the national nonprofit leaders in bridging the academic and job skills divides in the nation’s schools and communities believes this program is an important national initiative to provide a Cyberlearning Employee Training to businesses and non-profits at 80% below the market cost.
NEF will deploy the funds received from corporations to set up world-class K-12 Cyber-learning academies in the schools chosen by the corporations. Thus schools receive free top-rated individualized courses in STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, Math) as well as English, Social studies, SAT/ACT, IT, Business and Management. See http://www.cyberlearning.org.
This is a real win-win-win program. The corporations and businesses save 80% of their training costs, and receive enormous community recognition and corporate social responsibility credits. The schools get free world-class STEM+ academies. The communities benefit from the better skilled students and workers.
NEF Chairman Dr. Kuttan noted that, "according to the U.S. Labor Department, US has 3 million jobs looking for people. An obvious solution is to provide high-quality, affordable job skills training to a million employees, the goal of the NEF project.” Former President Bill Clinton commended Dr. Kuttan for empowering tomorrow’s leaders, stating, “I salute you for your ongoing commitment for creating a better and stronger America."
