Governor Wolf Announces New Apprenticeship Opportunities in Luzerne County

first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces New Apprenticeship Opportunities in Luzerne County Jobs That Pay,  Press Release,  Workforce Development Governor Tom Wolf announced the approval of $297,000 in new funding to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 163 Jointly Operated Apprenticeship Training Program (JATC). The funding will build on the governor’s commitment to expanding job training opportunities in Pennsylvania.“Organizations like IBEW are key players in my administration’s efforts to provide students and workers with the skills they need to achieve family-sustaining careers in the trades,” said Gov Wolf. “This project will help create apprenticeship opportunities across several counties that will have an immediate and lasting impact.”The funding will support JATC in developing workforces in Luzerne County and parts of Bradford, Sullivan, Wyoming counties by financing salaries and wages of the training director and instructors, training materials and equipment, and administration for 30 apprentices in the IBEW Local 163 JATC’s Electrical Journeyman Apprenticeship Program. Apprentices in the program will complete 8,000 hours of on-the-job training and nine hours of classroom-related instruction over five years. Upon completion of the training program, participants can become an electrical journeyman wireman earning $36 per hour or more with benefits. Apprentices also have the opportunity to earn college credits throughout the training.“We are thrilled to partner with DCED to create more economic opportunities in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Through this project, 30 apprentices will develop new workforce skills by participating in exceptional-quality classroom and technical instruction while earning $12 to $13 per hour. When they complete the five-year program, they can earn $36 per hour or more with good benefits,” said John T. Nadolny, Training Director, IBEW Local 163 JATC. “Our apprentices are able to achieve their goals of a productive and rewarding career with opportunities for continued growth.”Apprenticeship programs provide critical access to career pathways and enable apprentices to develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to compete in today’s economy. Classroom training is a required component of registered apprenticeship programs across Pennsylvania and complements traditional on-the-job training. The technical material taught in a classroom environment enables apprentices to learn fundamental concepts, terminology, procedures, safety requirements, and basic tools and instruments.“The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s investment in IBEW Local 163 JATC’s Electrician Apprenticeship Program will support the continued economic revitalization of Luzerne County and beyond while also strengthening our regional training program for the next generation of electricians and creating opportunities for the local workforce to thrive,” said State Senator John T. Yudichak.“This grant will support economic opportunity and growth in the greater Nanticoke area,” said State Representative Gerald Mullery. “With the support from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, IBEW Local 163 JATC will prepare apprentices to become Electrical Journeymen using the latest equipment and training methods.”Apprenticeships are a key component of Governor Wolf’s PAsmart initiative, an innovative way to improve coordination between state agencies, cut red tape, and invest in people and businesses to expand innovative job training in apprenticeships and other programs so workers get the skills they need to compete in the global economy.The Pre-Apprentice and Apprenticeship Grant Program is a statewide program to assist registered apprenticeship programs. The program’s goal is to increase apprenticeship availability to Pennsylvania employers to help with talent recruitment and development.For more information about the Wolf Administration’s commitment to workforce training, visit the Department of Community and Economic Development website, and be sure to stay up-to-date with all of our agency news on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

All committees have commenced their contact and discussions will commence within the week. The strategic plan for the next 18 months will be put to the Australian Sports Commission on February 17 and this will be inclusive of the current outstanding strategic directional matters combined with the Game Development Plan for the development area and the actions required to introduce and implement the management audit unitary model. A new schedule for sub committees has been completed, this document is a basic macro overview of the expected timelines required to successfully implement change by July 1 2005. Communication with State Government funding agencies has commenced especially aimed at the funding of activities within State Boundaries by a National Organisation as distinct to an Incorporated State Body. The ATA Legal Advisor has supplied a detailed information sheet on the winding up procedures needed for each State and Territory, ACT sample given at the end of this document. The ATA is in the process of appointing a new CEO (due to the retirement from the position of the current CEO) and once that is in place the employment of a senior member to the ATA (either a Member Services Manger of a Chief Financial Officer) will be undertaken. This is supporting the new ATA Office Structure as recommended in the Shilbury Report WHAT CAN YOU DO? As this is a critical time for the committees it is imperative that the chair of each committee is contactable. With that in mind I encourage any Touch participant to make contact and pass on their thoughts and ideas to these committees. One major change to the relationships between States, Regions and local associations is that of membership. Under the new constitution the ATA members (Legal Owners) will be the Local Touch Associations which is a major organisational change. The local player now has a critical role in the direction of the sport. This will give local associations a direct communication pathway to the national organisation. In saying this it has been recognised that local associations should contribute to these formative steps, after all the new members should be involved at this level as the outcomes will be inclusive of their ideas .We need your assistance especially with the sub committees work over the next 6 weeks. The Human Resource Committee needs a wider consultation base therefore we are looking for a couple more committee members preferably with experience in this area.

Improved Benefits to NHT Contributors Take Effect

first_imgEffective July 1, 2017, some new National Housing Trust (NHT) loan applicants began benefitting from improvements in Home Grants and financing for NHT scheme solutions. There are also special benefits for persons with disabilities. These include reduced interest rates and a special grant to assist with retrofitting their houses. The policy changes were announced by Prime Minister the Most. Hon. Andrew Holness during his 2017/2018 budget presentation in March and are aimed at making home ownership even more affordable for contributors.Leading the new policy changes is the NHT’s offer of 100% mortgage financing for all housing units it produces. This means that the Trust will lend qualified contributors the full amount required to buy NHT units, providing that they can afford the monthly loan payments.Currently, NHT contributors with a disability, who are certified by the Jamaica Council for Persons with Disabilities, repay their loans at a rate of interest of two-percentage points below that of the income group in which they fall. As of July 1, individuals earning up to $30,000 weekly will borrow at a rate of 0%. The NHT will also provide a grant of $150,000 to NHT mortgagors with disabilities or to mortgagors who reside with and care for a family member who is disabled, to retrofit or upgrade the dwellings to make them more suited for their needs.Meanwhile, NHT’s lowest earning contributors can now access increased funding following improvements made to the Home Grant programme. Contributors earning below $12,000 weekly and who have been contributing for over seven years, will be able to access up to $2.5 million for an NHT Home Grant. By combining their mortgage loan and the Home Grant amount, these contributors should be able to purchase a unity equivalent in value to an NHT studio. Previously, contributors could benefit from a maximum Home Grant of $1.5 million.Earlier this year, the NHT implemented policies which saw an increase in the loan limit for Home Improvement Loans to $2.5 million up from $1.5 million. With this new policy, two qualified NHT contributors can co-apply and access up to $5 million for home improvements. In addition, the loan limit for a House Lot loan was increased to $2.5 million from the previous limit of $2 million.The Trust’s housing programme for the 2017/2018 Financial Year will see the NHT commence construction of almost 6,000 housing solutions across Jamaica. Ground has been broken for approximately 3,000 solutions to date. For the 2017/2018 financial year, the NHT plans to write approximately 8,500 new loans at a value of $17.5 billion.last_img read more

Skilled immigrant doesnt want welfare but Quebec system makes it attractive

first_imgMONTREAL — Hugo Hernan Ruiz, a 42-year-old systems engineer from Colombia, has a master’s degree in his field and ran the IT department of an oil company in his home country.His French is excellent considering he arrived in Quebec in 2016 with little knowledge of the language. But like many highly educated newcomers to the province, Ruiz has struggled to find work despite being selected as a skilled immigrant by provincial authorities.After failing to find a job, he decided to open his own consulting business to take advantage of his South American contacts. He applied for a provincial program that assists budding entrepreneurs with grants, marketing and training.But he was rejected because the program was for people who were on welfare or who had received Employment Insurance — and he fit neither category.It would become a common refrain, he said, as he tried unsuccessfully to navigate the Quebec bureaucracy.“I think there needs to be a reflection,” Ruiz said over coffee at a strip mall in the Montreal suburb of Laval, where he settled with his wife and two children. “What happens to immigrants who are trying to succeed and who don’t come here to live off the government?”As Quebec Premier Francois Legault moves to reduce immigration in order, he says, to ensure newcomers learn French and find work, Ruiz’s case highlights the obstacles and contradictions facing educated immigrants who are neither poor nor wealthy.Yann Hairaud, head of a Montreal-based immigrant employment centre, said he knows of cases where skilled workers find options closed to them because they aren’t on welfare.“Unfortunately yes,” he said in an interview. “These situations can happen. There is a certain incoherence in some of the rules that exist for newcomers.”Shortly after Ruiz arrived in Quebec, he enrolled in a French-language program to study what’s known as the internet of things — the network of objects that contain electronics and can interact with one another.“I thought that instead of taking French courses, I would take a French-language course in my field, so I would learn both,” he said.He graduated with a vocational certificate last August — but because the government didn’t fully pay for his training, more doors were closed to him. A paid public-sector internship caught his eye, but to get it he had to qualify for a provincial salary subsidy.He was rejected for the subsidy, he explained, because the government hadn’t paid for his training.“I brought all my savings with me (from Colombia) and I prepared financially in order to avoid asking for welfare,” Ruiz said. “I’m not criticizing the Employment Department or the government. But I think the country needs to reflect on whether the immigration system encourages immigrants to go on welfare.”Dominique Anglade, immigration critic for the provincial Liberals, has not heard of immigrants going on welfare to land jobs, but she acknowledged those on social assistance have a certain advantage.Anglade, a former economy minister, said in an interview that “a high percentage” of immigrants fail to complete the necessary training to have their skills recognized in Quebec, in part because of the high costs involved.“When you go on welfare, you do have some support that can help you actually accomplish finding a job and everything else,” she said. She blamed the discrepancy on government departments not working hand in hand.Immigration Department spokesperson Chantal Bouchard, said integration “is obviously a priority” but referred questions about the obstacles facing skilled immigrants to the Employment Department.Employment Department spokesman Vincent Breton did not respond directly to questions about whether people who are not receiving welfare are at a disadvantage when seeking work.“As you know, the Employment Department offers many measures and programs for those who want to integrate into the workforce,” Breton said in an email, adding that each file is analyzed on its individual merits.Hairaud, whose organization CITIM works with about 1,800 immigrants a year, said the Employment Department gives priority to certain groups, including those who are on welfare or unemployment insurance.Quebec seeks out skilled workers, he noted, but they are ineligible for government support programs if they are deemed too successful.“It’s contradictory, the right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing,” Hairaud said.Despite the difficulties, the employment landscape is improving for immigrants, partly due to Quebec’s strong economy. In August 2018, the unemployment rate for immigrants between the ages of 25 and 54 fell to 6.1 per cent after hovering above 10 per cent for much of the previous decade, the Institut du Quebec reported.Ruiz said he’s happy in Canada. His two young children are in school, and he wants to start a new life here. But he questions the value Canada places on the first generation of immigrants.“My experience looking for work has been bizarre,” he said. “What is the life for professionals who come here? Is the first generation of immigrants important to Canada?”Giuseppe Valiante, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Cowboys Defense Brings Desperately Needed Win Over Redskins

The Dallas Cowboys defense rebounded to deliver a win to the team in Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.The Cowboy’s defense was blamed for last week’s loss to the Denver Broncos, but this week it was the cause of the desperately needed 31-16 victory.“Huge, huge win for us,” middle linebacker Sean Lee said late Sunday night as he stood outside the Cowboys locker room. “We knew we needed to uphold our end of the bargain.”Last week, the Cowboys lost their lead in the NFC East and owner Jerry Jones called the loss a moral victory and described how import this win was for the team.“I don’t want to call it pressure, but there was a lot riding on it,”  Jones said. “We did not need to lose this ball game. This was a moral victory.”As a note to the improvement of the Cowboys defense, they sacked Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III three times after getting just one sack combined in the past two games against Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning.The Cowboys are hoping for their first chance at consecutive wins this season as they take on the Philadelphia Eagles on their home field next week. read more

Buckeyes focused on dualthreat quarterback Denard Robinson

As quarterback Denard Robinson goes, so goes Michigan’s offense. Robinson has accounted for 67 percent of his team’s total yards through 11 games this season. Limiting the Heisman contender will be the challenge for the Ohio State defense Saturday. “It’s going to be tough to game plan for him,” senior defensive end Cameron Heyward said. “I don’t know if there really is a weakness.” The difficulty comes from Robinson’s ability to beat you with his legs and his arm. The quarterback is the first player in NCAA history to have more than 1,500 yards passing and 1,500 yards rushing in the same season. The evolution of his passing game is what has OSU defenders worried this season. “You’ve got to watch out because he has turned out as a good passer,” defensive tackle Dexter Larimore said. “He has been able to throw down field like he hasn’t quite been able to in the past couple years.” That improvement has come from more repetitions and more thorough preparation by the sophomore signal caller. “You’ve got to be able to read everything and know where everybody is supposed to be at on the offense,” Robinson said at Michigan’s weekly press conference Monday. “I think that is pretty much what I learned this year.” The fact that Robinson has been able to put both facets of the game together makes him hard to duplicate on the scout team in practice. The Buckeyes have to use more than one player to mimic the Wolverine quarterback. “I’m sure we’ll get some of the wide outs in there doing part of it (and) the running backs,” coach Jim Tressel said. “It’s a tremendous challenge because it gives you all of the problems that a wildcat offense gives you with a great running back … (but) it has all the passing problems.” The Buckeyes will use different scout players to work on Robinson’s running and passing threats separately because it is “impossible to simulate him” in any other way, Tressel said. Unfortunately for OSU, the two skill sets will be combined this Saturday. To slow down Robinson’s dual-threat capabilities, the Buckeyes will have to stay disciplined. “We just have to play assignment football,” senior safety Jermale Hines said. If “guys stay home and guys do their job, everything should take care of itself.” Teammates agreed that a team approach will be essential this weekend. “I think the biggest thing is to be able to play as a team and be able to play a team defense because he’s probably going to make one guy miss or two guys miss,” Larimore said. Discipline aside, Buckeye players realize that completely stopping Robinson is not an option. “He is one of the best players in college football, so it is going to be a huge challenge for our defense,” senior linebacker Ross Homan said. “We know that he’s going to get yards on us, but we just can’t quit.” The ability to dictate how he gets those yards might be the key to beating the Wolverines. In Michigan’s four losses, Robinson has 185 yards rushing a game. That number falls to 138 yards a game in the team’s seven victories. Given this disparity, limiting the passing attack might be more important for the Silver Bullet defense. The players realize that to do so, they can’t let Robinson get off to a quick start. “He gets very hot very quick,” Heyward said. “We have to be ready for both the pass and the run, and he’s got so many different options on the team, it’s going to be tough to stop him.” No matter how they go about slowing down Robinson, OSU players know doing so is the only way to stop the Wolverine attack. “He is definitely what makes their offense go,” Homan said. read more

Guardiola urges City players to be clinical
