Nashua Telegraph: Partnerships between students and employers discussed at roundtable meeting with Congresswoman Annie Kuster
The workforce environment is improving for the state’s young people, but many remain unaware of the existing opportunities that are available to them.
Among those opportunities are tuition-free courses offered to as many as 2,000 students who enroll in a core advanced manufacturing certificate program. The courses are offered through the Advanced Manufacturing Partnerships in Education initiative, which brings together the state’s seven community colleges, manufacturers, and state agencies to increase the state’s skilled workforce. The initiative is managed by the Community College System of New Hampshire.
