CHARLTON — Superintendent-Director Kyle Brenner is pleased to announce that Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School has been awarded a Career Technical Initiative (CTI) Grant to help bolster the school’s adult education program from the Baker Polito Administration.
The $579,710 grant awarded to Bay Path will be used to provide free training and placement services to 90 un/underemployed adult learners for high-demand Advanced Manufacturing, Culinary and HVAC positions. The school will partner with employers, including A&M Tool Design, All Points HVAC, Angry Panda Food Co, CK Smith Superior, Dexter, FLEXcon, F.W. Webb Co, General Mechanical Contractors, Great Oak Pizza, Pine Ridge County Club and Primetals Technologies, to conduct this training.
“This funding will provide our students with the opportunity to receive exceptional training and help them to prepare for their careers. It will also help support the trade industry by bringing expertly-trained individuals into the workforce,” said Superintendent-Director Brenner. “On behalf of the entire school, I would like to sincerely thank the outgoing governor and lieutenant governor for this very generous grant.”
The goal of the CTI Grant is to expand training opportunities for young people and adults as part of the Administration’s multi-year effort to address workforce skills gaps so more residents can pursue careers in growing industries and employers can hire qualified workers to grow their businesses.
This grant, which was administered by the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development, was part of $3,612,596 in funding awarded to support employers in training and recruiting Massachusetts workers for high-demand sectors like technology, healthcare, and manufacturing.
