Training Our Future Workforce
Introduction to Our Program Insert Teacher Name Insert Program of study you teach Insert Intended class or program that needs funding
Program Description Location: Insert school name, city, state Learners: 14- to 17-year-old students Primary Focus: train and develop welding career skills Purpose of Funding: Purchase welding simulator and/or welding guidance system and curriculum materials Amount Requested: Insert amount desired: $ Number of Students Reached: Insert number (To determine, multiple class size x number of sections x semesters x 4-year expectancy of simulators. For example, 30 students x 2 sections x 2 semesters x 4 years = 480 students)
Program Objectives Program Overview: Assist in create qualified welders in less time Increase welding understanding and knowledge quicker Be more effective in creating welders Increase the number of welders able to achieve passable welds Reduce the concerns of classroom management Decrease distractions by keeping welders focused on improving skills Use cost effective welding training tools Quality training tools designed for educational budgets and skills gap needs Decrease high school drop-out rates With more course interest students have greater involvement
WELDING TRENDS = SKILLS GAP 2013 & BEYOND Agriculture Equipment Highway Infrastructure Rail Transportation Energy Production Petro-Chemical Industry Five Welding Growth Areas: The Industry Facts: Fabrication & Construction industries need 450,000 welders to fulfill demand Welders are retiring at twice the pace of new welders coming into the field, the average welder today is in his/her mid to upper-50’s and nearing retirement. According to a study by the National Association of Manufacturers found that 81% of manufacturers polled report they can’t find the skilled workers.
d Now is the time to Change the Discussion
Today’s Learner Motivated by doing - Today’s millennial generation do not trust what you say. - Today’s millennial generation has the ability to find out the answer on their own Want immediate feedback - 70 percent of teens (aged 13-17) own smartphones - 79 percent of young adults (aged 18-24) own smartphones. 21 st Century Interaction - 83% of 12- to 17-year-olds have at least one social networking site, and 84% own one or more personal media devices (data from 2005).
The Solution: 21 st Century Welding Training
The Solution: A experiential learning technology to improving the lives of students and assisting in career skills for future work. Experience to train welders in a virtual environment Progress to a live welding guidance Commence with unaided live welding
RealCareer Welding Solutions The 21 st Century Welding Training Method Virtual Reality Guided Reality Reality Real Welding Guidance System Virtual Reality Welding Simulation
Simulators create more welders in less time 65% increase in qualified participants 28% Less Time 1.Stone, R., Watts, K., Zhong, P., & Wei, C. (2011).
