As one of many provincially-funded employment centres across Ontario, Fred Victor’s Employment and Training Services engage people one-on-one so they can think through short-term and long-term career goals, train for their future, find work and keep it. In other words, we help people find work that works.
We take an individual approach to helping people find a sustainable livelihood. Every job seeker is matched with a caseworker that has unique knowledge and access to job-related networks. Together they develop an action plan that may include skills and/or education upgrading before finding the right job.
Currently, we have the following training opportunities available:
Career Directions in Hospitality. Open to all Ontario Works participants, this 10-week course is for anyone interested in working in the food service industry. The program includes a field placement in our Friends Restaurant and the completion of recognized food handling certificates. Take a look at this poster, here.
Career Exploration. Open to all Ontario Works participants, this 10-week course is for anyone who needs additional one-on-one support in finding and keeping suitable employment.
Peer Tutors. Open to anyone in the Fred Victor community, this program offers informal training and work experience.
See our August calendar for complete program listings.
This Employment Ontario service is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
