Direct Course Purchase

Direct Course Purchase

 Objective:

The skills development program is designed to reinforce the concept that individual participants can take control of their future. Skills development supports the concept that clients who plan their own future, commit to an action plan and contribute to the implementation of the plan, are most likely to succeed. Through skills development, selected individuals, who are also insured participants, negotiate a level of financial assistance to take the training needed to become employed. The skills development program provides a mechanism that allows insured participants to make an appropriate financial contribution and reinforces support for their future. The skills development program is intended to support individuals whose Return to Work Action Plan identifies a lack of marketable skills as an employment barrier and demonstrates that training is the most appropriate intervention to facilitate their re-entry into employment.

 Eligible Training

Businesses, educational institutions, qualified trainers.

The types of training supported by Huronia include skills training for specific occupations, academic upgrading (if it leads to occupational skills training or employment and is not an end in and of itself), literacy/numeracy training for labour market destined clients. (English as a second language). All training must lead to a degree, certificate or diploma.

Full-time training is defined by each educational institution. Part-time training would be training that an institution considers less than full-time. As there is no minimum duration on the length of a training program that can be supported under the skills development program, each client request for assistance pertaining to correspondence courses, short courses, distance education, web-based courses, part-time studies, and the like, should be assessed on an individual basis.

Eligible Participants

Unemployed/underemployed persons who require assistance to overcome existing or anticipated labour market barriers.

Underemployed individuals can be supported in part time courses if their job is in jeopardy, or if they are underemployed in chosen field (tuition and course costs only), or if their existing job is low skilled (severely underemployed).

Out of regular high school at least one year if requesting assistance with a skilled course.

Out of regular high school at least two years if requesting assistance with upgrading.

Client must be a worker client (labour force attachment) not a student client.

Eligible Course Purchases

Course must be full time – minimum 20 hours per week

Part time courses may be considered for unemployed individuals only if full time is not available i.e. remote communities, alter-abled clients.

Conferences and workshops are not eligible and become the responsibility of the employer.
