Improve Your Workforce
We have trained enrolled over 750 students in Healthcare, Manufacturing, and Diesel Technology programs at three Community Colleges. This pipeline of highly trained, highly skilled employees is valuable to your long-term workforce needs. The majority of PATH students have significant work experience, motivation to work, and the soft skills employers seek.
Invest in Education
According to the PA Chamber of Business and Industry Workforce Development Survery, ‘very’ successful companies invest in workforce initiatives like internships/apprenticeships, College placement programs, partnering with technical schools, and mentoring programs. Forming partnerships with Community Colleges not only strengthens your workforce, but strengthens your community as well.
Control Your Advantage
Employees deliver value to your customers. Having employees trained to deliver maximum return on your investments is key to your long term profitability. Working directly with Community Colleges to tailor curriculum to meet your needs helps you and helps our students as we connect our curriculum to the local economy.
Reduce Recruitment Costs
Students attending Community College know the value of education and training. They have selected their career path and are preparing to succeed. Community Colleges offer a supply of trained, skilled employees with working backgrounds that can immediately contribute to your bottom line.
