Tognum America’s proposed education program gains White House attention

Representatives of Tognum America Inc., a subsidiary of Tognum AG, were invited to meet with representatives of the White House and the U.S. Department of Education, to discuss a planned apprenticeship program for high school students in Aiken County, S.C. The event was designed to be a roundtable discussion of ideas regarding programs aimed at improving education and helping more young Americans gain vocational training and enter the workforce without a college degree.


Known for its technological expertise in the area of power and propulsions systems, Tognum has now added an education program to its portfolio through a new program that will kick off this fall at its MTU Aiken Plant. 


The program, which will be produced in partnership with the Aiken County School District, the Aiken County Career and Technology Center, and Aiken Technical College, will combine high school education, classroom technical training, and hands-on learning at the MTU Aiken Plant. Six new high school juniors will be enrolled in the program each school year, beginning this fall. 



Joerg Klisch, vice president of North American operations, and Arjonetta Gaillard, senior human resources generalist, were joined at the meeting by leaders of the Aiken County Public School District, the Aiken County Career and Technical Center, Aiken Technical College and Apprenticeship Carolina. Together, the group shared Tognum America’s vision for helping high school students get a head start on a career in industrial manufacturing through its new apprenticeship program.
