Steering the future of specialized work force development in the State of Idaho, the efforts of The CORE on education will focus on not only students but also current professionals - a pool of talent that will be able to sustain the growing ecosystem. With the participation of Idaho’s major education institutions and various private groups, specialized workforce development will be a primary focus for The CORE.
The CORE will develop a pool of employment candidates from serial entrepreneurs, key management members, successful C-level executives, skilled technical employees, professionals, and talented employees. The CORE will provide current employees, and future employees, with access to various events, programs, and experiences that will increase the skill level of our talent base.
Areas of The CORE Education focus include:
- Introduction to health- and research-related companies and study tracks for K-12 students to expose them early to the needs and demands of a specialized workforce
- Addition of educational tracts in the public university systems (ex. Combined pharmacy/MBA program)
- Working with private educational institutions to develop programs that fill a need for current and future employers in Idaho
- Development of an entrepreneurial training program to educate and mature entrepreneurs through a cohort type program
- Providing access or scholarship opportunities to existing executives and key staff to training opportunities like Vistage
- Developing continuing education seminars throughout the year that will help a wide variety of the workforce increase their knowledge base and skill levels.
Coupled with stable incomes and the cultural vibrancy they stimulate, it is no surprise that educational opportunities have come to anchor many cities' prospects for growth. By encouraging education, The CORE aims to create and grow knowledge for the further development of the State of Idaho.
The Keystone Project will be a focus of CORE Education in the near future. THE CORE is focused on helping commercialize advanced research from universities and other institutions. It will work to help researchers better understand the process and opportunities in getting their research to the marketplace. In addition, The CORE will network this advanced research with assets to accelerate its development. Whether this is in the form of connecting researchers with state-of-the-art facilities that already exist in Idaho, helping find capital, or identifying potential collaboration opportunities, The CORE will do its best to augment the commercialization process.
Furthermore, Healthcare Economics, an aspect of the Keystone Project, will work with stakeholders like the universities to establish a baseline economic analysis of the current healthcare economy in the state.
