As Workforce Development covers a wide variety of topics and demographics, the SRMA’s WFD Committee will focus on getting grade school students excited and involved in a manufacturing career. Equally as important is getting parents, teachers, and guidance counselors excited about the opportunities within the industry.
We need to help change the perception that a high school graduate’s measure of success is the status of the 4-year university he or she was accepted into. Going to a technical college is equally as rewarding, and many graduates from Advanced Manufacturing tracts land careers paying much more than a university graduate. If we can help promote Robotic courses in middle and high schools, a high school graduate can have 7 years of experience by the age of 18! Why wouldn’t a manufacturer want to hire that person? They most certainly would!
