CVA's PICK OF THE MONTH

Levers and Logic Models: A Framework to Guide Research and Design of High-Quality Competency-Based Education Systems
The report uses logic model frameworks to convey relationships between essential levers (outcomes, drivers and mediating factors) that inform the design of competency-based education systems and critical components of competency-based practice at four interdependent levels (student experience, professional practice of educators, district and school systems and culture). Logic models are tools used to conceptualize organizations, programs or strategies to bring about change and to support the evaluation of effectiveness.

Within the next ten years, the majority of the world’s population will consist of the middle class, a trend that is largely driven by China and India, which will make up 90% of the entrants to the middle class.

Skills mobility – the ability to move from one job to another – will become a new competitive advantage.

We know that a skills gap exists, but how can we help young people better understand the skills they have, and how can we better equip them with the tools and resources they need to succeed?
