Working so that others can: Silk points students to careers | Manufacturing Jobs & Workforce Today | Scoop.it

Meeting Susan J. Silk for the first time typically starts with her asking four questions.

“What do you do for work?”

“Why did you choose your occupation?”

“What advice would you give kids going on a co-op?”

I wrote in October about new federal legislation that places an increased emphasis on apprenticeships.  In December I described a new model for a registered apprenticeship in industrial maintenance and mechatronics that was put forward by PMMI The Association for Processing and Packaging Technologies and approved by the US Department of Labor.  These two topics are now converging, catalyzed by the allure of 20 to 40 potential grants ranging in size from $2.5 to $5.0 million each to encourage apprenticeship.   Each million dollars in spending is intended to create about 200 new apprentices over a five year period.  Workforce agencies, schools and other non-profits are scurrying to develop and submit competitive proposals before the end of April...Read More....

ManufacturingStories's insight:

Most recently Keith Campbell's work has been focused on manufacturing workforce development activities, assisting high schools, community colleges and universities in establishing multi-disciplinary engineering technology programs. Educated in Physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Keith has never been constrained by the silos that sometimes constrain discipline engineers. He was an early advocate in the United States for mechatronics and has been actively engaged in assisting PMMI with development of their NAM-endorsed mechatronics certification program.
