TIES 2 Work: Employer-Specific Training in New Brunswick

Published on 05/05/2009

This story describes an initiative that creates a match between employers and potential employees by providing essential skills training.  Successful job candidates receive 12 weeks of classroom and on-site training and are guaranteed a job at the end of their formation period.  Employers get job-ready, pre-screened employees.  This project is similar to a job training initiative operating in St. John’s, NL called “Makin’ it Work.”  Vibrant Communities organizers in both cities have learned from one another’s efforts.
