ProLiteracy and Pearson, founding partner of Project Literacy, partnered to develop Workforce Atlas, a free online career pathways platform designed exclusively with the adult learner in mind. It is an engaging, intuitive, and learner-friendly platform that adults can use to assess their literacy, numeracy, and career skills and interests. Workforce Atlas is a comprehensive resource intended to “show” rather than “tell” adults about career recommendations suitable for them. The recommendations are based on hundreds of unique occupations informed by the open-source data from O*Net, a constantly-updated source of occupations from the Department of Labor.
Adult literacy organizations and programs of all sizes and types can greatly benefit from having adult learners use Workforce Atlas. It can be accessed on an individual level in workforce training, or within local service providers with basic literacy or ESL programming.
