We are offering a couple of summer trainings. Those interested in a course can contact our office (see attached flyer) about getting Workforce Ready Grant dollars which means the class would be free to them if they qualify. If we can spark enough interest locally there is the potential of having these same offerings at MASP Ivy Tech. I was told, we would have to confirm 6-8 students for a cohort. This is a great opportunity, please, share.
All the best,

We have heard from many of our local employers that they are struggling on a daily basis to find and retain a quality workforce. I suspect that you already know, national indicators confirm this trend will continue for many years to come. In this highly competitive environment, local employers are searching for a competitive edge to recruit talent and decrease turnover.
Recent studies demonstrate that an innovative approach to early childcare/early learning may be the answer. The SoIN4Early Coalition, a coalition focusing on high quality early care and education opportunities in Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington counties, invites you to join other community leaders on Friday, February 23, 7:45 – 10:00 a.m. to explore how employers can gain a competitive advantage through early childhood education. This free event will take place at Ivy Tech Community College in the Horseshoe Foundation Community Meeting Room.
Attendees will learn and discuss:
The business case for investing in early learning and the return on investment.
The importance of early learning and brain development.
Local and statewide data on access to high quality and affordable child care.
Feel free to share this invitation with others who deserve the opportunity to informed on this innovative approach. You can RSVP through the link below or by emailing me.
