Flexo in Education Program
The Flexo in Education Program brings together the support of the flexographic industry, the Foundation of FTA and schools.
The Flexo in Education Program was established in 1993 with the pilot high school located in Charlotte, NC. Originally called the Flexo in High School Program (FIHS), the program has grown to include post-secondary schools, as well as high schools. The program was the vision of Harper Corporation of America‘s Ron and Katherine Harper, and aimed to form a partnership between education and the flexographic industry to fill the need for trained workers.
In order to participate in the Flexo in Education Program, schools must have an existing printing program and a desire to expand their curriculum to include flexography. The benefits to students and the industry are numerous. Students learn marketable skills so they may enter the workforce upon graduating from school, while the industry benefits through the establishment of trained and skilled individuals with a basic understanding of flexo technology.
