Connecting Educators to Industry, North Little Rock, IN-PERSON
Did you know that today’s skilled and professional workforce is aging out and the next generation of new talent is not sufficiently skilled to fill the demand? The majority of job openings in Arkansas today are in high skilled technical fields and these jobs make up a vast majority of the manufacturing sector, a cornerstone of the state’s economy, and represent more than 90 percent of Arkansas’s exports. In addition, industries such as construction and trucking are also struggling to find qualified technical professionals. Unfortunately, there is a negative perception of these jobs held by the American public, so our goal is to change this perception by showcasing these outstanding job opportunities across the state.
The day includes a panel of industry leaders, a tour of local industry, a chance to learn about career opportunities in the North Little Rock community, and resources for the classroom.
This fun, fast paced, informative day will make a difference in the lives of many of your students! Don't miss out!
Upon successful completion, participants will receive:
• Six hours of ADE Certified Professional Development

•Opportunity to visit with industry leaders
