Challenge

Determining how skills-based training providers can increase interest in and access to outcomes-based education programs.

Students looking to upskill or reskill can choose from traditional educational institutions and bootcamps to accelerated learning providers and more. With a multitude of educational options, it can be difficult to identify schools that provide a quality education that translates to good outcomes. In addition, during the admissions process, schools face two main obstacles from students: the ability to pay and the willingness to pay up-front while taking on all of the risks.

Solution

Utilize ISAs to support and align student and institutional success.

The ISA is an elegant solution for lifelong learning because it creates a signal for value while also shifting risk away from the individual student. In traditional financing, the totality of the burden and cost of education is on the learner. With an ISA, there is incentive alignment between both parties, shifting the vested interest of post-graduate success to be shared between the school and the student.

ISAs in Action

Let's see how they work.
 
Make Enrollment Accessible

Use ISAs to eliminate financial barriers to upskilling so that no one is shut out from economic mobility because of up-front ability or willingness to pay.

Fill Empty Seats

By making skills training accessible to a broader population, ISAs can help fill seats in programs that would otherwise be left empty.

Increase Student Choice 

Institutions are using ISA programs to reach unique populations of students for whom current funding options are not a good fit, such as those with strong aversion to traditional loans.
