Jeffrey S. Geiger, president of General Dynamics Electric Boat, authored an op-ed about collaborations between the public and private sectors that provide workforce development programs.
The Manufacturing Pipeline Initiative, a program funded by a Workforce Investment Fund grant, is designed to address Electric Boat’s and other manufactures’ need for skilled workers. The program is managed by the Eastern Connecticut Workforce Investment Board.
PPA was selected to evaluate the implementation and program outcomes. Evaluation activities include site visits, review of administrative documents, key informant interviews, focus groups, participant and employer surveys, and qualitative and quantitative data analysis.
