Job Training Funds Awarded to Northern Westmoreland CTC, A.W. Beattie


State Sen. Jim Brewster said today that the state Department of Education has awarded Northern Westmoreland CTC $16,930 and A.W. Beattie Career Center $49,650 for new equipment to better align job training programs with high demand jobs.

“There is a real need to ensure that individuals in job training programs can access state-of-the-art equipment, so they are well-prepared to enter the workforce,” Brewster said.  “The funds will help better match job skill with job.”

Brewster said the grants were among 32 which were awarded to job training and vocation education centers.  He said almost $1,2 million was awarded statewide.

“The funding will enable more students to receive hands-on training which boosts their skill sets and makes them better prepared to meet the needs of local employers,” Brewster said.  “Matching job with trained employee is a win for the employee, the employer and our economy.”

The maximum grant is $50,000 and must be matched locally.

Brewster is a member of the Senate Education Committee.
