FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Northeast Indiana is getting a big pay check for training programs.
Northeast Indiana was awarded a $670,168 “Skill UP Indiana!” grant. It will be used to support training programs in skilled trades and insurance industries, according to Northeast Indiana Works.
“These initiatives will help fill talent pipelines for two growing, relatively high-wage industry sectors,” Executive Vice President of Strategic Initiatives for Northeast Indiana Works Gary Gatman said. “This is a critical evolution of successful career pathway work that has already been completed in northeast Indiana.”
The initiative will create a pre-apprenticeship program. The program will include classes in technical skills and employ-ability skills.
