HOW VERMONT TPM WORKS
VTPM invites EMPLOYERS within the same industry to form a "Collaborative." A Collaborative gains consensus on their most critical jobs - and aggregate hiring forecasts, competency and credential requirements.
VTPM translates those competency and credential needs for TRAINING PROVIDERS and creates hiring incentives for attainment of credentials - like internships, guaranteed interviews, higher wagers, and scholarships for career advancement.
VTPM partners with FUNDERS like Vermont Student Assistance Corporation, Department of Labor, Vermont Training Program, and Community Foundations to knit financial support for individuals, businesses and training programs that fill financial gaps for these demonstrably high-demand credentials.
Employers hire work-ready EMPLOYEES for the critical positions they need, direct from the training sources - saving time and money on posting, screening, interviewing, on boarding, training and retaining for jobs.
