Wanted: your drive and commitment

first_imgWanted: your drive and commitmentOn 1 Jun 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Makea real difference to the skills of your future workforce by getting involved inthe new Learning and Skills Council, entreats Nick Reilly, chairman andmanaging director of VauxhallAtsome time most businesses will find they cannot get applicants with the rightskills for the jobs they need to fill. Oftenthey find that young people lack the basics – or have qualifications which bearlittle relevance to the skills they need in the workplace.Whyare we in this situation? It is partly because presently businesses are notfully able to influence in an effective way how public funding is targeted inthe area of post-16 education and training.Nowis the time to change this. The Government is radically changing the way itfunds post-16 learning to give business a new and central role. FromApril 2001, the new Learning and Skills Council (LSC) will take on the currentTraining and Enterprise Council (Tec) network role in funding work-basedtraining (which includes Modern Apprenticeships). PowerfulTheLSC will also have responsibility for funding FE colleges and local authoritiesin respect of school sixth forms. It will therefore be a powerful public bodywith an annual budget of over £6bn. However,most decisions taken by the LSC will be made at local level, by its 47 local arms,each of which will have boards made up of at least 40 per cent business peopleSowhy should businesses get involved? The success of the Learning and SkillsCouncil will depend to a large extent on the business people who will sit onthe national and local boards. Weare looking for talented and motivated people from a wide variety of businessbackgrounds – and not just large employers. Small businesses are the backboneof our economy and their voice must be heard too.Thelocal Learning and Skills Councils will take important decisions about post-16education and training in their own area. Labourmarkets are predominantly local; and most small and medium-sized companiesrecruit directly from this local market for all their staff. EffectivetrainingItis business people who understand the needs of the local economy, what skillsgaps there are, and what type of effective training is required.Developingand improving links between business and schools will be another way that thelocal LSCs will drive up the availability and quality of training for youngpeople. Businesssupport for schools can have a huge positive impact on raising standards,developing key skills and preparing young people for adult and working life.Thesuccess of our businesses is tied in with the success of the Learning andSkills Council. Iwant to encourage people with a proven track record in business to play theirpart as board members.Thestructure of a powerful new organisation is being put in place. We must makesure that the people who take up the positions that have been reserved forbusiness, make the most of that opportunity.Iurge business people to apply for board positions on the new Learning andSkills Council, and supply the drive and commitment to making learning work forour economy in the future.NickReilly chairs a group of business people set up to encourage businessinvolvement in the new Learning and Skills Council. Information on how toapply, and electronic application forms, are available at or telephone theLSC appointments team on 0114 259 3716. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Tons of Cocaine Seized at FARC Lab in Colombia

first_img The Colombian Army dismantled a drug lab that belonged to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), and seized 3.9 tons of alkaloids in a rural area at Cauca department, a military source informed on March 16. “The joint operation with the Prosecutor’s Office was carried out in a rural area near the village of El Zanjal, in Timbiquí jurisdiction (Cauca). We were able to seize 3.9 tons of cocaine, as well as other supplies,” Colonel Jorge Mora, who commands the Army’s Special Brigade against drug trafficking, said. The drugs, seized on March 13 and valued at $22.2 million, were shown to the press at an Air Base in Tumaco Port, located in the department of Nariño on the Pacific coast. The lab had the capacity to produce over a ton of cocaine per day, serving as financial support for the FARC’s Joint West Command. Furthermore, the premises had the capacity to lodge at least 70 people, with two warehouses in which to store the cocaine. Before finding the lab, military troops engaged in combat against guerrillas from FARC’s Front 60, according to Mora. “This big production center was used for funding the 6th, 8th, 29th, 30th, 60th and Manuel Cepeda Vargas fronts, which operate in the departments of Valle del Cauca and Nariño, (on the border with Ecuador),” he stated. The Prosecutor’s Office said that the drug was sent through the Pacific to the United States. “There, some of the drugs are exchanged for weapons, ammunition, and explosives, presumably for the FARC.” According to the U.N., Colombia is the main cocaine producer worldwide, along with Peru. Every year, local authorities seize hundreds of tons of drugs from guerrillas, criminal paramilitaries and drug trafficking gangs. These cargos are mainly transported to Europe, Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico, where cartels such as Tijuana, Juárez, Los Zetas and Sinaloa operate. In February, President Juan Manuel Santos ordered the local authorities and the Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the alleged presence of Mexican cartel members, especially the Sinaloa, in Nariño and Valle del Cauca.

Liverpool boys soccer reaches sectional Class AA final

first_img Tags: C-NSliverpoolsoccer But as the first half wound down, Liverpool’s pressure picked up, forcing Black Knights goalie Olivier Bievenu to make a series of close-up stops, which carried over into a continual barrage early in the second half.In the 47th minute, the Warriors tied it 1-1, with Jack Pento getting yet another big goal for his side as his curving shot glanced off a Henninger defender and found the net.Midway through the second half, Justin Pham’s tremendous pass set up Uttam Bhattarai to run down the right side and slide a low shot past a charging Bienvenu for the go-ahead goal.Pham would clinch it with 8:31 to play, this time by using a well-timed jump to head a free kick from Mike Salinas into the net.Trying for its own unlikely sectional title run, the Cicero-North Syracuse girls soccer team could not upend top seed and defending champion F-M in its sectional AA semifinal at Central Square, taking a 3-1 defeat to the Hornets.F-M had not played a game in 11 days, while the Northstars had beaten Rome Free Academy 2-0 just four days earlier. But the Hornets quickly proved that it did not have any rust in its game.Seniors Anna Hartzheim and Hannah Knych would get F-M going, Hartzheim taking a pass from Lauren Clark and scoring less than four minutes into the game. Then Knych made it 2-0 before the midway point of the first half.Early in the second half, F-M got a further cushion when Knych, from 20 yards out, ripped a hard shot past C-NS goalie Amanda Byrnes. The Northstars did break the shutout late in the second half when Ashley Evans’ free kick eluded Haley Ingram, but its season concluded with a 6-9-2 record.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story This put the no. 7 seed Warriors into Wednesday’s sectional semifinal at J-D against another surprise entrant, no. 6 seed Henninger, who had upended no. 3 seed Utica Proctor 1-0 to get this far.It was Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Henninger on Oct. 17 that clinched a playoff berth, and now, with much larger stakes, the Warriors fell behind early, but took over in the second half to defeat the Black Knights 3-1.Henninger had gone out in front near the midway point of the first half when Excallant Bienvenu’s 40-yard shot crashed into the top right corner of the net, out of Dan Schaeber’s reach.center_img On the first Monday night of November, the Liverpool boys soccer team, which lost 10 of its first 13 games, will find itself battling defending champion Baldwinvsille at Jamesville-DeWitt for the Section III Class AA title.While plenty of past Warriors teams had earned this opportunity, none were as improbable as this one, which went from languishing near the cellar of the Salt City Athletic Conference Metro division to the brink of a banner.First, Liverpool had to win each of its last three regular-season games just to reach the sectional playoffs. Then it survived regulation, overtime and eight rounds of penalty kicks to shock then-state no. 6-ranked Fayeteville-Manlius in the quarterfinals on Oct. 24.last_img read more
