CMMA Manufacturing CTE Jamboree at Albany High School on November 21
CMMA is excited to host a new event called Manufacturing CTE Jamboree! The CTE (Career and Technical Education) Jamboree is intended to close the gap between education and industry. The event features an experienced lineup of speakers that are active in CTE in Minnesota. Following the presentations, join us for a tour of the recently remodeled manufacturing and CTE classrooms at Albany High School; this community has done a great job of utilizing a number of different strategies to expose youth to CTE pathways.
MANUFACTURERS: Have you experienced difficulty in hiring the skills you need? If the answer is "yes" - please encourage your HR department to attend this meeting. Are you fully engaged with your local high school? If the answer is "no" - please encourage your HR department to attend this meeting.
Speaker Lineup: Luke Greiner, MN Dept of Employment & Economic Development (DEED)
-Job Market Review and Outlook/LMI Career Wheel Kurt Helgeson and Chuck Hentges, St. Cloud State University
-SCSU Husky T&E, Youth Apprenticeship Bob Dockendorf, Principal, Big Lake High School
-Big Lake's Career Pathways and REAL Program Della Ludwig, MN Dept of Employment & Economic Development (DEED)
-Central MN Workforce Initiatives Rich Wessels, MN Dept of Labor & Industry
-Workforce Development/Youth Skills Training
The CTE Jamboree will focus on creating viable partnerships between education and manufacturing. More school-centric than most CMMA meetings, attendees will learn about best practices in promoting manufacturing careers in a K12 setting, learn how best to forge relationships between industry and education, learn about grant funded opportunities, and more.
School board members, superintendents, principals, counselors and CTE teachers are invited to attend. Manufacturers are invited to attend. CMMA recommends that you take a "team approach" - educators and manufacturers from the same community are encouraged to hear the information together. Is YOUR school/community ready to invest in the CTE focus that is taking place in education right now? The format will allow local manufacturers and educators to interact and envision programs and partnerships.
As is CMMA's policy for general meetings and tours, all K12 school representatives are invited to attend at no cost; registration is required.
