This ground-breaking program accelerates education and careers in a unique collaboration that brings together school districts looking to increase the success of their students; technical colleges that strive to build a pipeline of prepared students; and manufacturing businesses seeking to close the employment gap by mentoring and nurturing potential new hires.
"The core of the Credentialed Work-Based Learning program is preparing young people for success with a solid education, a career plan with purpose and employability skills for life," said Stephanie Borowski, President and CEO. "Today, 100% of our graduates earn industry-recognized certificates, and 80% who pursue advanced manufacturing careers are hired by companies at which they were trained."
