Giving Every Alabamian the Opportunity to Achieve Their Dreams

By Making All Learning Count

Talent Playbook Home

We first had to lay a foundation to meet the needs of a demand, skill and competency-based learning and talent-development ecosystem. Now we can start identifying in-demand jobs and connecting people with the opportunities they need.

Nick Moore, Director of the Governor’s Office of Education and Workforce Transformation

Alabama's Talent Triad

The Alabama Talent Triad supports growth opportunities and a skills-based economy designed to benefit students, job seekers, employers, and education & training providers through:

Skill-Based Job Generator

Employers can create customized job descriptions that help discover potential candidates. The skill-based job description lets you create templates to make the process of creating job descriptions easier.

Digital Wallet

Individuals can manage and curate their learning and employment records in a single place. With the collection of skills, credentials, and experiences, individuals can be left with better job opportunities.

Credential Registry

Discover & explore learning opportunities and pathways through our robust credential registry by navigating through open linked data that showcases required, related and equivalent credentials, helping you find the learning opportunities that best suit your needs.  

State Leaders

You know how critical skills-based hiring is today and how important it is going to be in coming years. In conjunction with competency-based education programs to support skills-based hiring, the Alabama Talent Triad has created a foundation for supporting our budding skills-based economy.

The Talent Triad has been established to support job seekers in their efforts to find the most advantageous employment, as well as help employers fill in-demand jobs. By bringing together employers & industry partners, education & training providers, and policymakers, Alabama has established a coalition and technical infrastructure that is unmatched as the first true skills-based hiring ecosystem.

In support of growing a skills-based economy beyond its borders, Alabama and its partners will be publishing play-by-play issue papers on the key elements of the Talent Triad here. Topics will include interoperability, the role of policy makers, employer engagement, the role of credential data and use of LERs, funding efforts, competency ontologies, and more.

We invite you to connect with the Alabama Talent Triad team to explore how this work can support transformation in your state and find opportunities to collaborate. We stand ready to find connections to your current efforts and are open to sharing as much as possible so that together we can achieve more for our citizens.
