Clemson University Center for Workforce Development is seeking AMT students who have been in an aviation maintenance program since March 2020 to participate in a study.
The goal of this project is to better understand the immediate learning responses to the COVID-19 crisis of two-year colleges with advanced technological education programs in their efforts to maintain academic continuity using digital learning tools such as virtual reality simulations and labs. Participation in this study will involve participating in an interview remotely on Zoom. We expect this interview to last for approximately 1 hour. Participants who complete the interview will receive a thank you gift card.
For more information or to participate in this study, please contact me, Dr. Katie Shakour, the research associate for the study, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last fall, the FAA officially convened the Department of Transportation’s Youth Access to American Jobs in Aviation Task Force. Appointees have since been collecting information regarding experiences with youth engagement, career development, workforce needs and industry readiness.
To assist in that work, the task force requests assistance gathering input from students in AMTS and any other aviation-specific training programs about the experiences with youth interest in aviation careers.
Please share the following invitation with students in your programs, encouraging feedback that will help turn their decision to develop aviation skills into better industry-wide effort to recruit and develop new talent:
The United States – and world – need more people to pursue careers in aviation. Since you’re on the path already, your experience is invaluable to the industry as it improves recruitment and retention efforts. Please share that experience by completing the following questionnaire, which was developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Youth Access to American Jobs in Aviation Task Force. Anything you share will be confidential and will not be seen by your school or instructors. To complete the survey, access the Google Form at https://forms.gle/x38aRMXxUA6qUEqc7.
The deadline to submit a response is Feb. 28.
This page is a venue to share ways industry is supporting aviation technician education, and other good feeling stuff! Share your story.
