Today, Mediaplanet launches the most recent edition of their “Celebrating Continuing Education” campaign. This campaign focuses on today’s adult learner and how education can fit into their personal and professional life.

The campaign seeks to inform audiences of the opportunities that access to information on various forms of professional and continuing education can benefit them in advancing their current careerss or kickstarting a new one.

Jake Schwartz, CEO of educational pioneer, General Assembly, speaks on the value of dynamic training in today’s workforce. With the increasing skills gap between what adults learn in school and what is required of them on the job, additional training is becoming more and more necessary. Jake and his team saw the increased need for relevant, affordable career training and created GA to provide that education to busy adults. He stresses, “The real challenge is putting all the pieces together so the individual can invest reliably their time, their passion and energy, and their money to get a real return through a career with better economic prospects.”
