On May 11, 34 teachers from schools in Beaufort, Bertie, Hertford, Hyde, Martin, and Pitt counties completed Rivers East Advanced Manufacturing Academy.
With funding from Golden Leaf Foundation, the Rivers East Advanced Manufacturing Academy exposes teachers to the many careers in Advanced Manufacturing within the region. Teachers visit all 4 of the community colleges within the region and learn about the programs they offer that lead to careers in Advanced Manufacturing. At the community colleges they receive hands-on experience, truly experiencing what students of those programs experience. Teachers are also equipped with resources, like the SkillsUSA Framework, to introduce personal skills, workplace skills, and technical skills into their classrooms, which prepare students for their future careers.
