Community College of Vermont gets $150,000 for job-training program

first_imgUS Representative Peter Welch on Wednesday announced a $150,000 federal grant for an innovative job-training program offered by the Community College of Vermont.Alongside recent graduates and teachers at CCV’s Montpelier site, Welch touted the Career Readiness Certificate Program as an effective means of equipping Vermonters with vital entry-level skills, while also supporting Vermont employers in need of a quality workforce.The federal appropriation Welch secured will help CCV increase the number of students it can serve through the program and expand it to sites around the state.“In this difficult economy, Vermonters must be equipped with skills that make them competitive in today’s workforce, and Vermont businesses require high-quality, well-trained employees to achieve their goals,” Welch said. “This grant will help the Community College of Vermont match qualified workers with quality employers through its innovative Career Readiness Certificate Program.”In its first year of operation, the Career Readiness Certificate Program has served 138 Vermonters. The free, 10-week program includes instruction in mathematics, reading, computer skills, data analysis, project management and teamwork. Currently, the program is being offered at CCV’s Barre/Montpelier, Upper Valley, St. Johnsbury and Brattleboro sites.“This program has received national attention because of the way it helps participants develop both the academic skills and the soft skills that employers tell us are needed to land and keep a job,” said Community College of Vermont Interim President Joyce Judy. “It benefits employees, who gain the skills to qualify for an interview, a new job, or higher pay, and it benefits employers looking to hire those who have mastered the skills needed for jobs.”Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of several Vermont businesses to enroll its employees in the CCV program. Pru Sullivan, the company’s director of continuous learning, and supervisor Mike Vasseur took part in Wednesday’s announcement.“Everyone who comes out of this class is a lot more confident across the board as far as learning new skills and taking on new challenges,” Vasseur said. “A real philosophy at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is the better the employee training, the better company you have overall because you have employees who are really stepping up.”Source: Welch’s office. 2.17.2010# # #last_img read more

Simmons not ruling out a return to the head coach position

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Former West Indies head coach Phil Simmons would consider returning to the position, once his current contract with Afghanistan comes to an end following this year’s World Cup in England and Wales.Simmons, who celebrates his 56th birthday on April 18, was fired from the position three years ago, but came to an amicable settlement with Cricket West Indies, following the election two Sundays ago of Ricky Skerritt to the post of president and Dr. Kishore Shallow to the position of vice president, after a long-running, legal challenge to his dismissal.“At the mo­ment, I am con­tract­ed to Afghanistan and there can be no talk about West In­dies crick­et,” he said in a radio interview with I95 FM in his native Trinidad.“I’m fo­cused on Afghanistan and how we get ready for the Crick­et World Cup start­ing in May. But af­ter the Fi­nals on Ju­ly 15, my con­tract is up with Afghanistan, but no­body knows the fu­ture. . .My whole aim now is to win the World Cup, so af­ter Ju­ly 15, let us see what hap­pens.”Simmons added: “Every­one who knows me un­der­stands how much I love this re­gion and how hard it has been for me over the last three years deal­ing with that mat­ter. I am just glad it is over, and my name has been cleared.“Most importantly, the apology from the new president Ricky Skerritt goes a long way in clear­ing up a lot of the talk under the previous administration. I believe that this shows that this new team is about the interest of cricket and not about themselves.”Simmons, a former West Indies opener and parttime fast-medium bowler, claimed he had experienced many ills during his period as West Indies coach, although he enjoyed success with the team, winning the 2016 ICC World T20 in India.He said he was surprised to hear that Dave Cameron had lost the presidency of CWI to Skerritt, but he was looking forward to a different approach from the new administration.“I was very happy for all of those that love West In­dies cricket,” he said. “How many persons know who is in charge of the England Cricket Board? And how many cricket board pres­i­dents are on tele­vi­sion or busy tweeting? West In­dies cricket can look for­ward to Ricky and Dr. Shallow and that is the pos­i­tive going forward.”Skerritt and Shallow unseated Cameron and Emmanuel Nanthan 8-4 for the top posts in West Indies cricket.last_img read more


Manchester United: Bastian Schweinsteiger could miss rest of season and European Championships

first_imgGermany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to miss the rest of Manchester United’s season with a knee ligament tear and faces a race against time to be fit for his country’s European Championship campaign in France.Germany coach Joachim Low revealed on Wednesday that he would miss friendly matches against England on Saturday and Italy next Tuesday after damaging a ligament in his right knee, but according to reports coming out of Germany, the former Bayern Munich player is facing a lengthy period on the sidelines.The Manchester United midfielder, who has only just returned to action following two months out, picked up a knee injury in a session with Joachim Low’s squad and travelled to Munich to undergo an MRI scan which has apparently revealed a partial tear to a medial ligament in his right knee.The diagnosis for such a tear is six or more weeks out. Such an absence would see the player missing until early or mid-May, but it depends upon the severity of the injury.”He was injured at the end of training without any other involvement, while playing a pass,” manager Loew told reporters. “It is likely to be the ligament which he had injured a few weeks ago (at Manchester United).”He is being checked out in Munich at the moment so I am not able to give an exact diagnosis. “We will discuss it this afternoon. It does not look very positive. Maybe it is partially torn. Obviously he will miss both matches.”Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to miss the rest of Manchester United’s season with a knee ligament tear and faces a race against time to be fit for his country’s European Championship campaign in France.Germany coach Joachim Low revealed on Wednesday that he would miss friendly matches against England on Saturday and Italy next Tuesday after damaging a ligament in his right knee, but according to reports coming out of Germany, the former Bayern Munich player is facing a lengthy period on the sidelines.The Manchester United midfielder, who has only just returned to action following two months out, picked up a knee injury in a session with Joachim Low’s squad and travelled to Munich to undergo an MRI scan which has apparently revealed a partial tear to a medial ligament in his right knee.The diagnosis for such a tear is six or more weeks out.

For further investigation, the captain will now undergo an MRI examination with national team physician Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt in Munich.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
