Focusing on training for manufacturing careers.

The Manufacturing Sector Partnership’s adult programs focus on training and direct-hire opportunities for adults who are unemployed, underemployed or looking for more meaningful career opportunities in a different field. We work specifically to bring underrepresented populations into manufacturing careers. In partnership with community organizations, federal, state and local funding sources, and workforce partners, these programs have graduated hundreds of individuals in a few short years.

ACCESS to Manufacturing Careers

ACCESS to Manufacturing Careers is the first step to building a prosperous career. In this three-week program, students learn both job readiness skills and technical competencies the 20+ companies involved in hiring from the program desire. The curriculum includes technical skills training, career readiness and hands-on training delivered by employers, as well as showcases opportunities with engaged companies.

ACCESS provides students the opportunity to go directly to work after graduation for employers committed to providing pathways for advancement for graduates of the program. First jobs include machine operator, press operator, grinder trainee, assembly or general production associate. These roles can lead to careers as a machine programmer, welder, robotic technician or maintenance technician.

The class has no cost for students who will earn a national credential as they learn and are paid a stipend throughout the program. ACCESS is operated by MAGNET’s partner Towards Employment.
