Entry Level Jobs that Can Lead to STEM Careers

According to the report Still Searching: Job Vacancies and STEM Skills, advertisements for STEM occupations requiring no more than a high school education were among the most difficult-to-fill jobs; with some advertised for over 60 days.

Some of the entry-level STEM jobs that required a high school diploma or short-term training mentioned in the report were: medical and lab technicians, broadcast technicians, HVAC technicians, geothermal technicians, and auto mechanics. 

Do you know of any current pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeship, or IET programming that currently exists that helps adults enter STEM-related career pathways?

How might Teaching Skills that Matter or TSTM prepare adult learners for STEM careers?
