In partnership with Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC), SRDC is evaluating the effectiveness of a pay-for-performance funding model for workforce development in the manufacturing sector. Building on the success of the national pilot of EMC’s Manufacturing Essentials Certification, this model seeks to engage employers to invest in essential skills training by offering partial repayment of costs based on achievement of success milestones. Based on input from manufacturers, the proposed model is being finalized via consultations with employers. As the delivery of Manufacturing Essentials is increasingly being offered online, the evaluation considers a comparison of in-person vs. online delivery methods and outcomes.
