The Massive Growing Need for Micro Colleges – Every new technology creates a need for more training. Very often it ends up being niche learning that takes place in-house with existing employees. But we’re also seeing a growing refinement of industries driving the need for huge new talent pools that currently don’t exist.
Whether its virtual reality, specialized 3D scanning, 3D printing,
mobile apps, Internet of Things, flying drones, or reputation
management, the need for tech-savvy fast-to-adapt talent pools is
growing, and growing quickly.
This is also an area where traditional colleges have missed the boat.
Their attempt to put everything into a 2-year or 4-year framework has
left the largest untapped opportunity ever for short-term full-immersion
courses that help workers reboot their career.
The rapid growth in coding schools such as our own DaVinci Coders is only a tiny slice of a much larger Micro College pie that will get created over the coming years.
