Brief Description of Institution: 

Manufacturing and logistics have led Indiana out of the recession, but employers struggle to find qualified applicants. As factories and supply chain operations become increasingly high-tech, and the Baby Boomer workforce approaches retirement, the need for the next generation of skilled workers is becoming desperate.Conexus Indiana's Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics (AML) Curriculum Development Program, Hire Technology, addresses the changing AML workforce landscape by creating a high school - level curriculum for "middle skill workers." The program, rolled out in coordination with the Indiana Department of Education and Ivy Tech Community College, enables current students to complete industry-recognized certificates and earn dual credit, all while preparing for post-secondary programs and careers in AML. Hire Technology is a two-year turn-key Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics program delivered through Indiana high schools and career centers. The program facilitates student achievement by including contextualized math and science concepts to reinforce key academic STEM concepts while promoting the development of the applied problem-solving skills demanded by AML industry members.To maintain curriculum consistency, accountability, and high standards across Hoosier schools, Conexus provides all course materials and training, including project-based activities, formative assessments, and educator instruction.
