1 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Colorado’s Advanced Manufacturing Pathway: Filling the Talent Pipeline Presented By: Ben Nesbitt Jo O’Brien

2 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing New Realities: Education, Workforce &Economic Development 14.3% - Unemployment rate among youth ages million – Estimated job openings in our economy 54% - Companies with vacancies they cannot find qualified workers to fill 55% - Job seekers blame gaps in their education on lack of skill 42% - Job seekers reported a lack of knowledge about career opportunities 25% - Job seekers reported receiving career path counseling in HS 41% - Job seekers wished they had received more career guidance

3 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing New Realities: Education, Workforce & Economic Development “In public education, one size does not fit all. If all students are to be successful, they need a choice of the pathway they will take to college- and/or career-readiness. It is critical that we provide viable pathways through career and technical education with programs that integrate both academics and technical skills and are aligned to employer needs so that we can prepare students for the high-paying, high-skills jobs available in the 21st century.” Terry Holliday, Chair, CCSSO Task Force on Improving Readiness Commissioner of Education, Kentucky

8 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Resources to Accomplish the Task HB1165 Manufacturing Career Pathways – Inventory skill gaps, recommend strong courses, and design easy entry and exit ramps for workforce TAACCCT/CHAMP – Significant Advanced Manufacturing equipment infrastructure, curriculum development in manufacturing programs and self-driven career exploration.

9 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing

10 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advanced Manufacturing is defined as… …the method to design and produce. It uses innovative technology, processes and methods to improve the quality of production, products & workforce.

11 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Colorado & Advanced Manufacturing Colorado is positioned to expand its Advanced Manufacturing capacities. This will require skill and knowledge preparation of our workforce. A clear career pathway will need to be designed in order to attract and grow people with these competitive and specialized skill sets.

12 Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing Advancing Possibilities for All Advanced Manufacturing HB 1165 is the Plan to Get Us There This year: – Agreement about the skill and knowledge gaps Business-led analysis of skill competences – Review of curriculum and training Inventory of education courses, mentoring and assets – A design of a quality career roadmap/“Colorado’s Talent Pipeline” Education and training options that enable individuals to obtain industry-validated skills and industry certifications leading to employment in the manufacturing sector.
