Presents a case study of the Automotive Manufacturing Technical Education Collaborative (AMTEC) to identify and implement wide-ranging improvements in technical education for automotive manufacturing workers.
The Automotive Manufacturing Technical Education Collaborative (AMTEC) brought together 30 community colleges and 34 auto manufacturers across 12 states to identify and implement wide-ranging improvements in technical education for automotive manufacturing workers (p. ii, p. 2). This study revealed that it is possible for governors to work collaboratively with industry, community colleges, and each other to provide people with the opportunity to build their technical skills and ensure both America’s future prosperity and their own economic security (p.4).
