Governor Wolf Announces Funding to Support Classroom Training in Apprenticeship Programs for Four Central Pennsylvania Companies

first_img Economy,  Education,  Jobs That Pay,  PAsmart,  Press Release,  Workforce Development Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Wolf announced the approval of apprenticeship grants to four central Pennsylvania businesses to assist with the costs of necessary classroom training that complements on-the-job training, enabling the companies to strengthen and expand their apprenticeship programs. The funding, which will build on the governor’s commitment to expanding job training opportunities for Pennsylvanians, was approved for Tooling Dynamics, Billet Industries, Inc., Flinchbaugh Engineering, Inc., and Phoenix Contact USA.“By expanding our support of apprenticeship programs, we’re strengthening Pennsylvania’s workforce and helping companies secure fully-trained, long-term workers,” Governor Wolf said. “This funding will enable these four companies in the heart of Pennsylvania to build on the success of their training programs and help put workers on reliable middle-class career pathways. It’s a great example of how we can work with the private sector to empower workers and boost Pennsylvania’s economy.”Apprenticeship programs provide 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 four grant awards, which will support the classroom portion of the companies’ existing registered apprenticeship programs, are as follows: $43,943 over three years to Tooling Dynamics, a micro-precision stamping company in York County, to support machinist, maintenance machinist, and tool and die maker apprentices;$29,700 over three years to Flinchbaugh Engineering, an employee-owned contract manufacturing company of machined parts in York County, to support precision machinist apprentices;$4,340 over two years to Billet Industries, a provider of precision machining and fabrication services in York County, to support machinist apprentices ; and$18,000 over three years to Phoenix Contact USA, a developer and manufacturer of industrial electrical and electronic technology products in Dauphin County, to support mechatronics technician and maintenance repairer apprentices.Apprenticeship programs are a key component of Governor Wolf’s PAsmart proposal designed to strengthen Pennsylvania’s workforce. As part of the governor’s 2018-2019 budget proposal, PAsmart would improve coordination across commonwealth agencies and invest $50 million to improve access for Pennsylvania students and workers to education, training, and career readiness programs. That investment includes an additional $7 million to support apprenticeships, with the goal of doubling the number of registered apprentices in Pennsylvania by 2025. Working collaboratively with the business community, community colleges, and other higher education providers, funds will support youth pre-apprenticeship and registered apprenticeship experiences as well as adult apprenticeship programs at the postsecondary level.PAsmart would also build on the Wolf Administration’s Apprenticeship Training Office (ATO) which the administration established in 2016 to support and expand registered apprenticeship programs statewide. Since the ATO was created in early 2016, the office has registered 107 new sponsors and 149 new apprenticeship programs or occupations, bringing the total number of registered apprentices to 15,476 statewide.For more information about the Wolf Administration’s commitment to workforce development, visit the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) website or follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube.

Hughes keen to keep Begovic

first_img The Bosnia-Herzegovina international will enter the final year of his current deal this summer and there has been much speculation about his future. Hughes has often stated that club and player plan to discuss the situation at the end of the season, but that has not prevented rumours that talks have stalled over wage demands. Begovic has also been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool recently, with stories fuelled by the player’s lack of participation in the Potters’ last two games. Hughes says he has been fulfilling a pledge to allow England Under-21 international Jack Butland some game time late in the campaign, but he admits Begovic asked not to be on the bench. The 27-year-old instead took the opportunity to undergo what Hughes described as a “slight procedure”, but he could be back in action at Burnley in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday. Hughes said: “My view on it hasn’t changed. I want Asmir to stay here. We can offer him a good option. We feel we are progressing and we want him to be part of that. “We are conscious that he is in the last year of his contract, so we are wary of that. “Financial demands will always be part of the discussion, but I don’t think that would be something that would affect anything we would be looking to do with him. “We haven’t had those talks yet but once we do at the end of the season then hopefully we can get a quick and happy resolution. “We want Asmir to keep progressing as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League here. I am very hopeful of being able to agree something with him and his representatives.” Press Association The Potters head to Turf Moor having equalled their Premier League-best points tally of 50 with last week’s 3-0 win over Tottenham. One more point will not only set a new club record but ensure successive top-half finishes in the top flight for the first time in 40 years. Hughes, who will have been in charge at the Britannia Stadium two years this summer, believes the club have made good progress during his tenure. He wants that to continue and sees no reason why the club should not be aiming to qualify for the Europa League again in the near future. “We have two games to hopefully exceed what we achieved last season, starting with the one against Burnley,” the Welshman said. “I have a real good feeling about this place and feel there is even more room to progress for us. I would love to take the club into Europe if possible – that is an obvious target for us. “People suggest that being in the Europa League is a burden, but for ourselves it is a burden we would be more than happy to take on.” Stoke boss Mark Hughes has reiterated his desire to keep goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and denied reports of a contract dispute.last_img read more
