On-The-Job Training Regional Spotlight: Philadelphia

Building Philadelphia’s Advanced Manufacturing Pipeline

While each employer will have different individual requirements for selection criteria, all participating employers have agreed upon minimum screening requirements. These criteria were designed in conjunction with the development of a manufacturing boot-camp bridge program launched in May 2018. The boot-camp is designed to help individuals build industry-contextualized job readiness skills and be guaranteed interviews with employers. JOIN envisions this boot-camp, and similar secondary education programs, as ideal bridge programs to feed into OJT programs.
