Meet Corey Marchand and Tyler Ashton, two student workers advancing their careers through work-based courses, in this video from Jobs for the Future (JFF). As their stories demonstrate, work-based courses are a gateway to community college education for manufacturing workers. Community colleges work with individuals who want to “skill up” to advance their training and have a better career. Employers like OMICO Plastics consider sponsoring workers in their continuing education “a perfect way” to build company loyalty among employees. This resource is especially useful for employer supervisors, college program administrators and faculty, incumbent workers, and technical high school faculty and students.
