Rhode Island IT and Bioscience Skills Gap Studies

"Why IT Works" Rhode Island IT Skills Gap Report - Tech Collective Rhode Island Bioscience Skills Gap Report - Tech Collective 

Tech Collective’s bioscience and IT industry skills gap studies comprehensively focus on Rhode Island’s high-tech, high-growth industries. The reports identify workforce skills gaps at the entry and mid-levels; career pathways and professional development; the education pipeline from K-12 through higher education; and offer recommendations and actions to move forward. The reports are researched and compiled using local and national industry data as well as garnering Rhode Island employer insights via focus groups, one-on-one interviews, and surveys. Findings of the skills gap studies aim to raise awareness of and guide investments in Rhode Island’s bioscience and IT workforce. Funded by a GWB Industry Partnership Grant. 

From January to June, 2014, Tech Collective’s Rhode Island Skills Gap Forum Series was held as a follow up to its skills gap reports. Featuring a panel of Rhode Island leaders and stakeholders, six forums provided an opportunity to discuss the findings of the reports as well as current and future initiatives the state can undertake to grow and innovate in these industries. There will be three forums per industry, each focusing on: Industry, Education, and Government.
