***COMING SOON***


Leadership Academy 2022 - "How It's Made"
June 8 and June 15
Educational Workplace Tours


Registration for Leadership Academy is NOW OPEN on Frontline
Seating is VERY LIMITED
ACT QUICKLY

Manufacturing Association  Next Generation     


Seats are open to all educational staff - leadership is encouraged to attend.
This year, we’ll be exploring “How it’s Made” and touring manufacturing sites (some are really secure – so we’ll be asking for Passport ID!).

We'll be holding sessions on both days about unpacking Pre-apprenticeship and Work-Based Learning; with Act 158 now permitting Preapprenticeship Certification as an Alternative Pathway Credential – suitable for HS graduation, we want to help bring better understanding about what it is, and how to get students actively interested and involved.
 
Please note the costs to participate for PCD consortium schools, and non-consortium schools. This is one activity that is open to ALL – but seating is VERY limited. Please act quickly!
 
Registration is open on Frontline, but fees are collected separately through either PayPal (QR code below) or by invoice request.

ABOUT PCD


The Partnership For Career Development (PCD) is a business-education-partnership intermediary located in the Capital Region of Pennsylvania. PCD’s experience and expertise is concentrated in the field of Career & Workforce Readiness. PCD works under a fee-for-service model providing schools and school districts in South Central Pennsylvania with resources, programs, events and initiatives surrounding career exploration and development. In addition, PCD provides multi-level consulting at county, state and national level for businesses, organizations and individuals.


With 25 years of experience in developing programs, initiatives, studying and researching relevant labor market data, consulting and meeting with relevant stakeholders from business, education, and community, PCD is recognized in Pennsylvania by state agencies as a leader and best practice in this work.


PCD’s unique collaborative model provides regional schools with consortiums to share resources and work cooperatively. As an intermediary, PCD is able to provide efficiencies for regional businesses and organizations, creating career exploration programs and initiatives that allow students to participate from dozens of schools at one location. This helps to alleviate “employer fatigue,” as identified in PA, resulting from many schools calling on the same businesses for support. PCD’s model allows for the braiding of funds, and utilizing economies of scale, and the leveraging of local, regional, state and national partnerships, permitting PCD to act as a conduit for access & equity of resources & programs. 


PCD Tenets

  • Work-based Learning / Career Mentoring as the “gold standard”
  • Alignment of interests with market needs
  • Access & Equity in experiences, programming and support
  • Accountability of Learning
  • Collaboration not competition in this non-partisan work

Career Exploration Online

Career Connections HUB


This high-school level, career exploration platform currently connects students with manufacturing job information and opportunities. The fully interactive portal queries student’s interests to match and explore industry-provided high-need occupations. Students completing the experience will be matched with current offerings including career shadow opportunities, internships, part-time, full-time and seasonal work opportunities. PCD will work in-between, “hand” guiding students to schools and those opportunities.

Organizations can use the portal to promote their industry needs and provide info about jobs. PCD also offers 360-degree virtual tour options to allow an immersive "in-house" experience without site safety issues and field trip paperwork. To see the Hub click here
 
PA School Personnel and individuals with a PPID# (PPID# lookup) or interested in obtaining one can obtain Act 48 credits through a virtual walk-through experience by registering through 48 CARATS.
