Georgia embraces Germany’s apprenticeship model

Jan 26, 2018
Manufacturers are worried they will not have enough skilled workers in the future, so they have started to create apprenticeship programs to train high school students.
Georgia Piedmont Technical College received funding to open a new Advanced Manufacturing Center in Covington. It includes five labs for training in machine tools, electronics, mechanics, automation and process control, as well as industrial wiring and motor controls.

(U.S. Edition) The White House has released a framework that would create a path to citizenship for people who arrived in the U.S. as undocumented immigrant children, but the plan comes with some caveats. We’ll talk about what those are, and the pushback this proposal is receiving from both Republicans and Democrats. Afterwards, we’ll discuss Apple’s foray into the smart speaker market through the release of its HomePod, which comes with a price tag of $349. Then to cap off today’s show, we’ll look at how some states are taking a cue from Germany’s apprenticeship model to fill manufacturing jobs.
