What is Knowledge to Work?

Knowledge to Work is a free, work-based learning tool that assists learners, job seekers, and incumbent workers with skill development through competency-based education. We help people document the competencies they already know and learn new ones using free or low-cost learning resources. Competencies are a combination of knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform a specific task within a job role.

We've aligned many learning resources for mastering competencies within occupations, credentials, apprenticeships, and more to help adult learners excel within their career.
