Talent Cloud Request for Applications (RFA)
Workforce Connections (WC) is establishing a professional development program called the Talent Cloud. The Talent Cloud is an initiative that targets professionals working in development, specifically on the global youth employment problem. The objective of the platform is to equip workforce development professionals with technical and field knowledge, opportunities to collaborate with like-minded peers, and provide access to experts and resources. The Talent Cloud identifies, creates and opens career pathways for practitioners in order to encourage their own growth and contributions to workforce development.
The Talent Cloud aims to take experiential learning for development practitioners to scale by providing a replicable skills program for a greater impact on youth employment outcomes. The program will start small this year, in order to generate lessons and adapt the approach; it will likely expand in the future.
