The Department of Immigration, Population, Skills and Growth offers a Skills Development program which provides financial support to eligible individuals who are seeking full-time post-secondary training at a public or private training institution.
Programs must be 12 weeks or great in duration, or short-term training of less than 12 weeks. Individuals must be Employment Insurance eligible, and be engaged in a case management approach with the department, including the development of an Employment Plan.
Individuals have to apply by emailing EmploymentPrograms@gov.nl.ca
to start the Employment Plan process, which includes:
- A general information session
- The identification of barriers
- A detailed job search
- Labour market research
- Career exploration
- Work and educational history and
- Other items that may be identified
It is important that students begin this process as soon as possible in order to meet funding deadlines to begin their program in September. Students are recommended for funding once the Employment Plan and all related documents are received.
