Over the next decade, seven in 10 new jobs in Pennsylvania will require workers to use a computer and an estimated 300,000 STEM jobs will be available in the commonwealth by 2026. To meet this projected demand, Governor Tom Wolf launched PAsmart, a new initiative to invest in the commonwealth's existing and future workforce.
PAsmart is built upon recommendations of Governor Wolf's Middle Class Task Force, comprised of business, labor, education, and workforce development leaders. In 2019, Governor Tom Wolf secured $40 million to strategically invest in education and workforce development through PAsmart.
PaTTAN Consultants, as part of the PA Smart Design Team, work to develop and facilitate both K-8 Integrated model and 7-12 pathways that involves over 1000 educators across the commonwealth.
