If you lack the necessary skills, credentials and experience for a job you desire, a little (or a lot) of training can be just what’s needed to help reach your career goals.
The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federal law that is designed to assist individuals with finding and retaining employment and to help employers find the qualified workers they need. Consistent with that, MySuncoast Scholarship has financial aid that may be available to selected unemployed and underemployed individuals.
Selected individuals may be eligible for scholarships for tuition assistance including instructional costs, books, materials, uniform/supplies, on-the-job training, vocational guidance and career coaching. The primary focus of this financial aid is on education and training for one of this area’s targeted occupations. Upon completion of an approved training program, CareerSource Suncoast will help match your skills with jobs that are currently in demand.
