About this grant

This grant will enable the Sector Skills Academy to conduct a second class, drawing upon the experiences of leading sectoral employment practitioners who have direct knowledge of a wide range of approaches to effecting change that will benefit low-income workers.

The academy is a project of the Aspen Institute.
