Ver­mont Col­lege Wins $2.5 Mil­lion

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The Com­mu­nity Col­lege of Ver­mont will re­ceive a $2.5 mil­lion job-train­ing grant from the U.S. Depart­ment of La­bor, the Ver­mont con­gres­sional del­e­ga­tion an­nounced to­day.

The grant comes through a ca­reer train­ing pro­gram, said Sens. Pa­trick Leahy (D-VT.) and Bernie San­ders (I-VT.) and Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT.).

“The Com­mu­nity Col­lege of Ver­mont has a proven record of ef­fec­tive ser­vice to stu­dents, com­mu­ni­ties, and em­ploy­ers in Ver­mont,” the del­e­ga­tion said in a joint let­ter to U.S. La­bor Sec­re­tary Hilda So­lis sup­port­ing the grant re­quest.

The col­lege has matched course of­fer­ings with what em­ploy­ers say are the most-needed skills. A new Com­mu­nity Col­lege of Ver­mont pro­gram of­fers a fast-track as­so­ci­ate de­gree for adults en­rolled in cour­ses that pro­vide train­ing in high-de­mand, high-growth ca­reer fields.
