Is there a chance for Delaware to increase its share of the manufacturing industry?
Senator Chris Coons believes so.
In fact, he and Senator Kelly Ayotte introduced the Manufacturing Skills Act this year hoping to modernize the way states and cities run their job training programs. The hope is to provide those looking for employment with the skills they’ll need for today’s manufacturing jobs.
According to an article written by Sen. Coons, ‘Manufacturing can be transformed in Delaware’, on Oct. 3, 2015, the skill sets necessary for the manufacturing jobs of today require a higher level of math and engineering than those needed 20 years ago. Many of these manufacturing jobs require two-year college degrees or more. The ability to work in a team environment and higher levels of critical thinking are also required.
While there is a skills gap that has hindered the growth of manufacturers and the economy, ‘Pathways to Prosperity’, a program spearheaded by Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, has helped to train Delaware students. This program has united local high schools, Delaware Tech and local manufacturing companies in a common goal; that of giving Delaware youth the skill sets they’ll need for a career in the manufacturing industry.
