What is Skills2Compete Maryland?

Skills2Compete Maryland (S2C) is a new skills vision designed to:

  • increase post-secondary success
  • strengthen the skills of Maryland’s workforce
  • grow the middle class
vision
Vision

Every working Marylander should have access to the equivalent of at least two years of education or training past high school - leading to a career or technical credential, industry certification, or one’s first two years of college - to be pursued at whatever point and pace makes sense for individual workers and industries.

principles of the vision
Principles of the Vision
  • A high school education is no longer enough for most jobs
  • More than 730,000 adult Marylanders lack a high school

diploma, English language skills, or the literacy skills for

workplace success

  • Marylanders need pathways to gain skills for economic

success and to join the middle class

  • Maryland must be able to compete nationally and globally

with a strong workforce preparation system for its citizens

(students, workers, workers displaced by economic

change, and those currently not connected to the labor

market)

goals
Goals
  • Increase Maryland’s economic competitiveness
  • Produce more skilled workers to meet the growth

of middle/ high skill jobs

  • Grow the middle class by providing opportunities

for more Marylanders to gain skills, increase

earnings and advance in the workplace.

maryland partners with national campaign
Maryland Partners with National Campaign
  • S2C Maryland is part of the Skills2Compete initiative, a

non-partisan national campaign to strengthen the workforce and address the middle skills gap.

  • Sponsored by the National Skills Coalition, S2C encourages America to address U.S. competitiveness.
  • S2C’s focus is on jobs in the middle of the skilled labor market which require some training past high school, but not a four-year degree.
  • In collaboration with the national S2C campaign, Maryland, along with several other states, will craft their own similar effort, unique to the state’s need for a skilled workforce.
