Amazon selects NS4ed as part of the AWS EdStart Community

NS4ed LLC, a rising leader in technology-based career and college education services and actionable research, announces its recent selection as a full member of AWS EdStart. As a new member of the Amazon Web Service educational technology startup accelerator, NS4ed will join Amazon's global community of Ed Tech innovators to develop accessible, scalable services for rural and urban school systems in states across the country.

NS4ed offers state and local educational and workforce entities a unique perspective on gathering market-based information to develop models that yield mission-critical policy change options for communities, states, and their schools. The flagship program, Pathway 2 Careers (P2C), offers a critical bridge between education and industry that can help educators connect with the realities of their local job market. The P2C policy platform provides a flexible framework where educators can explore labor market information and access innovative methods for preparing students for careers. Through the use of straightforward tools, educators can easily identify high-value career destinations for students. These destinations guide the selection of effective resources and materials available within the P2C framework, that can sustain progress on the path to career-readiness http://pathway2careers.com/.
