During the April Community of Learners webinar, The Manufacturing Institute previewed the recently launched Get Skills to Work initiative for returning veterans.  Every month thousands of service men and women return home, possessing not only an unmatched work ethic but also rigorous technical training and experience.  Pioneering manufacturers are leading the effort to bring together entire communities in public-private partnerships to match veterans with employment opportunities. 

Get Skills to Work has several key components: critical employer partnerships, a skills match made possible through a virtual Military Manufacturing Badge, and just-in-time accelerated training for high-demand skills aligned with industry certifications.  The webinar provides an opportunity to learn how you can add this valuable new initiative to your community education and training offerings. Staff from the Institute provided an overview of the model, and several employer partners discussed how they are accessing the program to employ skilled veterans in critical high-demand jobs.
