M-SAMC Case Study
In 2012, the Multi-State Advanced Manufacturing Consortium, M-SAMC, was formed under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant to align community college training programs with the needs of the manufacturing industry, particularly the automotive sector. To gain insight on the impact of the grant, case studies were conducted with four (4) of the 13 partner colleges. This video shares how grant initiatives impacted programs at Henry Ford College, Spartanburg Community College, Bluegrass Community & Technical College, and Gadsden State Community College.
Participant Engagement Facilitator (PEF) Case Study
M-SAMC introduced the role of Participant Engagement Facilitator to perform outreach to trade-affected and displaced workers, strengthen student support and advising, and manage participant data collection. The PEFs overcame many challenges, like time and training, to successfully implement M-SAMC initiatives at partner colleges and help transition programs to the competency-based model. Watch the video to hear about their challenges and successes.
