Building a New Advanced Manufacturing Workforce in Wichita

Employers will develop training plans that will allow participants to acquire occupational, employer, and/or industry-specific skills, competencies, and credentials. PACES has an existing training plan template required for OJTs. It includes flexibility for multiple training styles, exposure to work tasks, tools, and other methods individual employers deem necessary to complete training. PACES also incorporates a strong upfront assessment to identify barriers, supportive service, or employment needs. PACES will also determine the need for additional pre-employment training with employer recommendation. Soft skills and work ethic, as well as technical and hard skills training, are made available to OJT participants through PACES.
