Gateway Technical College was again honored for its innovative manufacturing training, this time as one of 30 nominees for recognition by the Great Lakes Manufacturing Council as benchmarks for the Talented Workforce Initiative.
Gateway is the only college in Wisconsin to be recognized with this nomination, which focused on the college’s many boot camps.
“Gateway is proud to have received this nomination,” said Debbie Davidson, Gateway vice president Workforce and Economic Development Division. “Our industry-driven boot camp programs have provided employment opportunities for more than 250 individuals through a collaborative model that engages workforce development, education and employers.
“Employers engage in curriculum development, participate in mock interviews, provide staff for lab assistants and interview on-site job offers immediately following the student's completion ceremony. Companies who are seeking to fill skilled entry level positions are finding the boot camps meet their hiring needs and they view the college as one of their talent pool sources.”
