An unusual coalition of competing automakers (Toyota, Ford, and GM) launched a community college curriculum to jointly train the next generation of skilled workers. The program, a technical core curriculum relevant for all auto manufacturers, will debut at Henry Ford Community College. The alliance started as a partnership between Toyota and the Kentucky Community & Technical College System, which founded the Automotive Manufacturing Technical Education Collaborative in 2005 (funded by a National Science Foundation grant). The Collaborative then signed up Ford, General Motors and the automakers' suppliers.
