DESIGNING THE NEXT GENERATION OF SKILLED CRAFTSPEOPLE

 

THE PROBLEM

  • We are rapidly losing a precious resource in our country - skilled workers who can build things, create things, and fix things

  • The retirement of baby boomers and resurgence of manufacturing and other technical skills industries is creating a huge gap in the  technical skills workforce

  • For example, more than 2 Million jobs will go unfilled in manufacturing in coming years due to shortage of skilled workers (see below)

  • These jobs don't require a 4 yr degree - and the subsequent student debt - but merely certificate based or 2 yr technical training
