In Connecticut, manufacturers have highlighted the high demand and corresponding shortage of skilled workers. As manufacturing continues to move towards a high tech environment and the aging workforce begins to retire, there is an increasing reliance on postsecondary credentials.
Foundation Program: Our Piece of the Pie partners with Asnuntuck Community College to deliver a comprehensive, contextual learning experience combined with occupational skills instruction in three certificate programs in Manufacturing Technology – Manufacturing, Welding, and Electronics. Nearly all graduates secure jobs in high-demand positions. Also, if needed, youth have the opportunity to attain their high school diploma.
