Advanced Manufacturing Employer Partnership

Employers Making a Difference Through Industry Partnerships

The Advanced Manufacturing Employers Partnership (AMEP) supports sector industry partnerships that identify alternative ways to build the manufacturing talent pipeline.  Working with Workforce Solutions Collaborative of Metro Hartford, CCAT serves as the manufacturing sector intermediary. We work with Capital Workforce Partners in convening quarterly AMEP meetings.

AMEP is an avenue for manufacturing employers to come together, share ideas and resources, influence others and get recognized for their efforts in workforce development.

Support services

Each quarterly meeting brings together speakers on current topics such as apprenticeship, manufacturing innovation, and workforce forecasting.  Participating employers have first-hand access to many state and federal programs that offer financial support in growing their business.

Commitment to young adults

AMEP recognizes Connecticut manufacturers who are making a difference with young adults through recruitment, training, and retention services focused on this population. Throughout the years CCAT has been able to successfully nominate several AMEP manufacturers for the Young Adult Employer Champion award presented by the National Fund for Workforce Solutions.

Pre-screened applicant pool

Participating employers can access a pre-screened applicant pool through the CCAT Manufacturing Careers Program.  This particular group of job seekers have foundational and technical skills that have been validated through training and assessments.
