The Importance of Education in Developing New Job Skills in Today’s Technology Driven Manufacturing

Here’s a 4 1/2 minute video clip from NBC news talking about the critical importance of the role of education in developing new job skills, and how today’s educational system is not up to the challenge in providing necessary STEM education.

It talks about an innovative apprentice program in Cincinnati, Ohio, and how new skilled workers will be sorely needed as current ones retire and how they will need to have a new set of skills as technology transforms high tech manufacturing.

Gateway Community and Technical College created a new Center for Advanced Manufacturing, an innovative new job training center, and is a partnership between Gateway and local industry partners.
