Pole Star Experiential Learning's hybrid approach for workforce development incorporates skills gap training and executive career coaching woven within our virtual micro-internship experience with an innovative curriculum called the Professional Edge Platform©. This has been designed to develop, measure, and improve workplace performance thereby enhancing an individual's chance at winning that next job offer! These critical professional competencies are those that are vital in any industry, and now you can earn certifications in these transferrable skill areas by participating in PSEL's academies. These competencies are currently housed within the Credential Engine Registry©.

At the end of anyone of our programs, our participants walk away with real-world experience to show on a resume, certifications in soft-skill areas, a professional portfolio, an improved online presence; and an app from SkyHive that is a virtual career recruiter in their pocket that uses the power of AI to match their skills to those that prospective employers are demanding.

Let Experiential Learning start working for you

Step by step

Authentic learning happens when one has had an experience to reflect upon. This requires learning by doing that can increase competency factors from the very beginning toward levels of mastery and expertise.

Step 1. Concrete Experience 

Experiential Learning starts with having an experience that you may not have encountered before. 

Step 2. Reflective Operation 

One will then reflect on this experience and decide what worked and what did not. 

Step 3. Abstract Conceptualism

By analyzing the experience one can make conclusions and learn from the experience.  

Step 4. Active Experimentation

How many employers allow this and are ok with failure? We often learn more from failure than we do from success. 

We grow by planning and testing what has been learned to achieve a greater capacity of skill and competency. 

What do some of our past students say?

We aim to make the Pole Star experience challenging yet rewarding and gratifying as participants will be introduced to some concepts that need developing, processes that need direction, and problems that need solving. Our consortium partners are committed to their growth and success which means that they have a problem that only our team can fix!

Past program participants have revealed that in the beginning, they felt a bit overwhelmed, a bit confused, and felt thrusted into a chaotic environment. However, this is by design as most formidable challenges can be uncomfortable at first. Therefore, these sentiments can be expected and are all part of the process. Our Professional Edge Platform© is an incubator for success. This purposeful uncertainty allows leadership to take root and to grow and is what makes or breaks a true professional that can work successfully with anyone anywhere.


We would welcome the prospect of discussing your particular needs, whether it's individual or for your organization and look forward to setting up a time to do so. We can't wait to meet you!
