Weekly workshops provided by The Department of Advanced Education and Skills

The Department of Advanced Education and Skills will be providing workshops at the Grand Lake Centre of Economic Development on Wednesdays. These workshops may include resume writing, job search, labour market information and skills development overview sessions for individuals. AES will also be providing information sessions for Employers who wish to learn more about the programs and services available to them. If you are interested please read the description of the sessions and sign up to attend. Workshops may change depending on registration and need each Wednesday.
Resume Writing
This resume development workshop would be for clients wishing to develop a useable resume for job search. The session would include an overview of the common types of resumes used to find employment. AES staff will help determine which resume style would be beneficial to you and help you develop a resume based on your skills and experience. You will be required to have a USB or email to save your resume electronically.

Labour Market Information Session
Newfoundland and Labrador is the site of numerous world-class industrial projects in the areas of petroleum development, mineral development, and mineral processing. The province is also the site of the proposed Lower Churchill project, the most attractive undeveloped hydroelectric project in North America. This presentation provides more information on these projects, as well as other initiatives taking place in our forestry and agrifoods resource sectors. The presentation will also provide information on the local job market in each of the regions across the province.

Skills Development Overview information Session
If you are unemployed or under-employed and need additional training or skills to help you find employment you may be eligible for Skills Development financial support. To apply for Skills Development, the Department of Advanced Education and Skills (AES) requires you to first complete a Skills Development Overview Information session. This session will help provide you with a better sense of the funding program and help determine your readiness to access funding for training.

One on one Employer Information Sessions
The Department of Advanced Education and Skills (AES) provides a variety of services and supports to assist employers. The JobsNL wage subsidy program for example provides funding to employers to create new employment opportunities for unemployed or underemployed individuals. This program was created recently through the combination and enhancement of a number of wage subsidy programs including: NL Works, NL Wage Subsidy, the Graduate Employment Program and the Wage

Subsidy for Persons with Disabilities.
The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Job Grant is a program is targeted to private sector and non-profit employers. This program will provide a financial contribution to employers for employer-sponsored training for existing and new employees. Training costs will be shared between the employer and government. There are also a number of workshops available to assist employers with a host of human resource related needs.

If you are an employer and interested in learning more about the programs and services available to you through the Department of Advanced Education and Skills please sign up for a one on one session. Call the Deer Lake Chamber at 635-3260 for more information!
