Employment training gets Albertans back to work
More than 1,000 Alberta job-seekers around the province will benefit from expanded employment training opportunities through the Integrated Training Program.
The Alberta government is investing $10 million over the next two years to support 11 new Integrated Training programs. This will help an estimated 1,100 unemployed or underemployed Albertans gain the skills they need to succeed in today’s changing economy.
“Our focus continues to be on making Alberta’s economy stronger and more resilient, supporting families and helping Albertans get back to work. Investing in education and skills training will provide new employment opportunities to Albertans affected by the downturn, ensuring a strong and diversified workforce.”
“Motive Action works with young unemployed people who lack education, work experience and work contacts. Integrated Training programs provide an opportunity for these youth to develop the skills and attitudes needed to build a better life, support their families and contribute to their communities.”
“Our province has a great need for skilled tradespeople and Motive Action is working to help supply good-quality workers to fill that need. GreatWest Kenworth has been working with Motive Action for 30 years and we look forward to hiring more of their highly qualified graduates in the coming years.”
