Closing the Skills Gap

This is and interesting article from Michigan Public Radio on closing the so-called “skills gap” in Michigan.


They do a good job at pointing out that our CTE programs provide students with the skills and training they need to enter the workforce in high quality, well-paying jobs.  They also point out the difficulties in finding quality teachers in these fields.

Did you know that all the CTE teachers at MBCC worked in the field they teach?  Our Culinary Arts teacher is also a chef!  Our Health Science Teachers worked as Registered Nurses, Personal Trainers, Registered Dental Hygenists, and Red Cross Instructors!  Our Design Technology teachers have worked in Web Design, Digital Photography, Illustration and Game Design.

Quality teachers with industry experience.  Just one of the things that makes the “Berry Experience” something special for our students.
