Siemens has partnered with the Georgia Foundation for Public Education (GFPE) to help train South Forsyth High School students on key skills that generate good, high paying jobs. Siemens, an electronics and electrical engineering company, has a plant in nearby Alpharetta.
Students will be taught by an instructor who was trained by Siemens. Eventually, the program will also include internships, work-based learning projects and opportunities for overseas cultural experiences for students in Germany. The training materials provided by Siemens is valued at more than $500,000.
“We are excited to assist the Georgia educational community with the launch of this educational program,” says Helmuth Ludwig, CEO of Siemens Industry Sector North America. “This partnership is consistent with our values – Responsible, Excellent and Innovative – and it will promote STEM initiatives throughout the Southeast region of the United States. Through this program, companies like Siemens will be able to identify and develop the next generation of outstanding employees.”
