The Program Manager of the GE Foundation/NAMC Advanced Manufacturing Training Expansion Program (AMTEP) is responsible for leading the final design, implementation, and ongoing operations. The goal of AMTEP is to substantially increase the pipeline of trained workers into the North Shore of Massachusetts Manufacturing industry, ensuring that the production talent needs of the area manufacturing employers are met. AMTEP will provide education and training for area residents, both high school youth and adults, to prepare them for quality careers. This initiative will help close the talent gap faced by area industry due to business growth and anticipated retirements.
The GE Foundation AMTEP is in partnership with the Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (NAMC) as the lead Implementation Partner. The AMTEP PM will be employed as part of the NAMC team, which includes four Workforce Development Board regions and their Career Centers. Other key partners currently include the Essex County Community Foundation, Lynn Public Schools/Lynn Vocational Technical Institute, Essex Technical Institute, Gloucester High School, and North Shore Community College.
