Preparing Local Students for

a Successful Tomorrow

in Manufacturing

NWFMC MANUFACTURING ACADEMIES

The Council worked closely with its members and the National Manufacturing Skills Standard Council to implement a formal certification program within our local school system, providing students access to a curriculum specifically designed for achieving success in a manufacturing field. Through funding provided by the state of Florida and UWF, the Council launched Manufacturing Academies in each of the Council’s 10 school districts. In year one, more than 1,000 middle and high school students in Northwest Florida were enrolled. The next step is to ensure those students graduating from the secondary programs have a path to follow, either through CareerSource to employment or through established Career Pathways for those students who decide to continue their education. Through the Council’s partnership with the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center and the region’s post-secondary institutions, these pathways are being defined.
