Training for New Manufacturing Careers

There are millions of unemployed people. A large number of those who are undereducated, and, as a result, unqualified for today’s high-tech manufacturing jobs. North Carolina’s K-12 schools and community colleges are closing the skills gap by training youth for highly skilled, good-paying jobs in manufacturing after graduation. At the same time, manufacturers are working to shed the negative stigma of yesterday’s manufacturing to attract the next generation of employees.
