‘Next Level Jobs, Indiana’ logs impressive numbers

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — In less than one year, Indiana’s Next Level Jobs initiative has obligated $5.2 million in funds to 247 employers for training almost 2,300 Hoosiers around the state in six high-demand industry sectors.Gov. Holcomb today shared these milestones, as well as plans to enhance the Next Level Jobs’ employer training grant, at a roundtable discussion and tour of Custom Concrete in Westfield. Custom Concrete is one of the Indiana companies actively participating in a program to receive Next Level Jobs funds for training new employees.“We’re seeing firsthand today the ways Next Level Jobs is working for Indiana employers,” Gov. Holcomb said. “The feedback we’ve received from businesses has been overwhelmingly positive and useful. They’re helping us identify ways the Next Level Jobs initiative can be stronger and put more Hoosiers to work in better-paying jobs faster.”Based on employer feedback, Indiana will double the funds available per employee trained from $2,500 to $5,000 and increase the total amount available per employer from $25,000 to $50,000. This funding is made available to participating employers through reimbursement for employees who are trained and retained for at least six months.Other changes will be incorporated to streamline and make the Next Level Jobs’ employer training grant easier for employers to use. Among those changes, the state will open the grant for employers to include not only new employees but also existing employees who receive training that leads to increased work responsibilities and higher wages. All changes are effective immediately.“The response from employers to the Next Level Jobs initiative has been tremendous, with nearly 600 applications received,” said Fred Payne, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. “These new enhancements expand opportunities for more Hoosiers to begin a new career in a high-demand field and for current employees to skill-up right where they are for a better paying job.”The employer training grant is a part of Gov. Eric Holcomb’s Next Level Jobs initiative, which launched in August 2017. The initiative also includes funding to cover the full cost of tuition for individual Hoosiers who want to earn a credential and secure a better job.Both employers and everyday Hoosiers can apply for these funds in a five-minute application at NextLevelJobs.org.last_img read more

Ashwini Ponappa focussing on being fit and ready for Olympic qualification

first_imgLast Updated: 23rd November, 2019 18:44 IST Ashwini Ponappa Focussing On Being Fit And Ready For Olympic Qualification The growth of women’s doubles in the country is very important and through this tournament we are trying to give wings to the aspiring talents, says Ashwini. Eyeing an Olympic berth at the 2020 Tokyo Games, India’s doubles specialist Ashwini Ponappa on Saturday said she is working on her fitness and strength to be in good shape for the upcoming season. The Olympic qualification period in badminton is between April 29, 2019 and April 26, 2020 with the ranking list published on April 30 to be used to decide the spots. Ashwini, a ‘Red Bull’ athlete, is aware that the road to Olympic qualification will be a tough one as she and her women’s doubles partner N Sikki Reddy will have to rack up ranking points ahead of the April 30 deadline.Read- Find Sunil Chhetri in EA Sports FIFA 20, sneak peek into the Indian captain’s ranking Press Trust Of India Written By 9 months ago Steven Holcomb’s Olympic legacy to grow, for a final time Read- Rijiju: Selection of sports persons clean, transparent”My partnership with Sikki Reddy has been good. We’ve had pretty close matches with top 10 players, where we have played at a high level. Unfortunately we have had pretty tough draws and first round losses,” said Ashwini, who had competed at the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympics with Jwala Gutta. “We are working towards playing better and hopefully changing that,” the 30-year old shuttler added. Ashwini, a 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medallist, feels it takes time for doubles teams to produce results and emphasized on the need to encourage girls to take up doubles at a young age.Read- Kiren Rijiju: ‘We will form a committee for Sports Code’ 10 months ago Hockey: Indian women thrash USA 5-1 in Olympic qualifier’s 1st leg LIVE TV 9 months ago Shooting: Tejaswini Sawant wins India’s 12th Olympic quota place SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 23rd November, 2019 18:44 IST COMMENT “It takes time to produce results. It doesn’t happen in a short span of time. Especially when it comes to doubles. Over the years the game has changed so much. Most pairs are good both at attack and defence, unlike before where pairs were good at one,” she said. “The growth of women’s doubles in the country is very important right now and through this tournament we are trying to give wings to the aspiring talents,” said Ponappa, who will play with the winners of ‘Red Bull Shuttle Up’ tournament.  “Focus would be on getting my body strong and fit and working more on basic drills and getting that strong. Since we have just a few months left we will also be playing more tournaments and being fit and ready would be important,” Ashwini told PTI. Ashwini and Sikki, ranked 24th in the world, had a dismal run this season with the pair faltering in the opening round 13 times in 20 tournaments and exiting from the second round thrice. 9 months ago Sachin Tendulkar finds a fan in Yohan Blake, former Olympic champion wants an autograph WATCH US LIVE WE RECOMMEND FOLLOW US 9 months ago IOC launches Olympic channel in Hindi; Move is aimed at improving Indian engagementlast_img read more
