Amgen-EduNational Biotech Opportunity
The report title
People Without Jobs - Jobs Without People, written in 2010 by
Rick Miner for the Province of Ontario has become a slogan to describe the
collision between the retiring cohort of the baby boom generation, and the
work force entry of a new generation needing better-focused job skills in
a knowledge economy.
To bridge that skills gap, EduNational has begun working with companies in
Ontario's burgeoning life sciences sector, a high-value network of firms with
a strong need for the best young minds, and the incentive and resources to
help develop a new generation of scientists, technicians and life sciences
business people. Perhaps you (or your child) could be one of those people.

Amgen Canada have partnered on a fascinating and original biotech initiative to help
today's generation of students get ready for the jobs of tomorrow.
The importance of doing your homework
What quality and quantity of information do most people use to buy a car or
a household appliance? Is it better or worse than what the average student
and his or her parents use to decide where that student will attend a
secondary or post-secondary institution? Do you know what program best
suits a student's aptitude and learning skills?
EduNational offers you a set of links to studies, reports and other
information to help your family make a more informed decision. It's about
reducing risk and choosing well. Next to buying a home, an education is now
the most expensive investment people make in themselves.
How this information relates to EduNational Services
The services EduNational offers respond directly to the needs and
deficiencies identified in reports and studies made by leading edge
academics and thinkers into how secondary and post-secondary studies
can better prepare students for the realities of today.
Rather than being rooted in tradition, EduNational services challenge
the status-quo by matching what type of learner a student may be with
what kind of program or environment a secondary or post-secondary
institution may offer.
