Several new startups have emerged that aim to connect a pipeline of certified students with a targeted curriculum with employers in need of the resulting skills. In this case, NextStep is trying to help help displaced workers retrain for jobs in healthcare. They’ve announced a $3 million investment to help them do so. It isn’t clear who is paying for the education – are employers investing in the education of the talent pipeline? Or, are students paying for the education as they would any other training courses, or as a deduction from their salary after finding a new position/getting “placed.”
