INDIANAPOLIS -

German Ambassador Peter Ammon is touting international skills training he says will help fill vacant jobs in Indiana.
 
Indiana and German leaders are focusing on training Indiana residents to fill the skills gap between available work and unemployed Hoosiers. Ammon, U.S. Sen. Dan Coats and Gov. Mike Pence told university and business leaders gathered at Ivy Tech in Indianapolis about their joint efforts Monday.
 
Pence has spent much of his first year in office focusing on ways to change how Indiana students and workers are trained. He said Monday he expects to announce new appointments to the Indiana Career Council this week.
 
Ammon told the crowd that not every student is meant to train to be a neurosurgeon and that important manufacturing jobs are being left unfilled.
