CNC Software Inc.’s Mastercam is partnering with e-learning platform Edge Factor in a workforce initiative designed to provide organizations free online ‘Experience’ toolkits to help inspire students and job seekers to pursue career pathways in skilled trades.
Featuring select tools from the Edge Factor library, the multi-media programs will be available for schools, companies, and industry leaders to share in classrooms, homes and at events.
“Mastercam and Edge Factor have been corporate partners for over ten years, and we’ve found this to be a very beneficial partnership as both companies share a common goal of bridging the gap between education and industry and raising overall awareness,” says Graham Hargreaves, corporate marketing manager, Mastercam.
“We are excited to partner again in 2021, and once again unite for three key initiatives that represent core business drivers for Mastercam. Bridging the skills gap, showing opportunities for women in manufacturing, and expanding overall awareness of manufacturing in our communities are of utmost importance, and our partnership with Edge Factor will help to deliver those messages to a critical audience.”
Edge Factor has created thousands of videos, interactive activities, and lesson plans that focus on career exploration. K-12 and postsecondary schools, companies, and organizations partner with Edge Factor to help tackle workforce development regionally and nationally.
