Skills Commons is an online workforce development library of work-related open educational resources sourced from community colleges across the United States. It was created by the US Department of Labor as part of its Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program.

The Skills Commons team of professional librarians, educators, developers and technologists have leveraged the expertise of community colleges across the country to develop and deliver innovative workforce development programs with an aim of upskilling learners for free.

All Skills Commons courses are reviewed by subject matter experts and developed in partnership with real industries and business so that they provide learners with the actual skillsets required by employers. With a focus on pharmacy and physical therapy, these courses open up career paths into fields in which jobs are plenty and which can be highly lucrative.
