Growing our workforce while impacting our community starts here. We started Industry Insider in 2018 as a way to connect Monroe County educators with local industry. Last fall, teachers from all throughout the county toured industries and gathered to hear a speaker share the importance of how working hand in hand with local industries brightens everyone’s future. While meeting with educators as part of the follow-up from our first Industry Insider, we learned that they have a deep desire to bring industry exposure to our students in the classroom. Our educators play such a key role in the lives of our students, so our second annual Industry Insider was designed to show our educators that the Career Tech Centers offer more skills, options, and benefits than ever before. With numerous industries right here in Monroe County, our students don’t have to look far for higher wages and great benefits. We are looking forward to helping to forge partnerships with our industries and together, growing our workforce.
Industry Insider WAE (Workforce-Advancing-Education)
Industry Insider WAE (Workforce Advancing Education) was created as a direct result of Industry Insider. We began exposing our students to things being made right here in Monroe County during the spring of 2019. Local industries have volunteered time to show students some of the unique things they produce while also helping them understand the essential skills required to be successful in the workforce. Industry Insider WAE is now connecting industry with students to offer apprenticeships and internships. For more information, please contact Kelly Martin at 662-369-6488.
