OTTAWA, Sept. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Are you an employer who would like to take advantage of apprenticeship training but unsure how to start? Wouldn't it be nice to just walk into a store and find everything you need to know? Well, look no further! Help is at hand.
CAF-FCA is pleased to announce an Employers One Stop Shop in the form of a catalogue appearing on our website and listing all employer incentives available right across Canada!
You Spoke. We Listened!
Employers from across the country communicated to us that they wanted clear information on apprenticeship incentives such as tax credits, pre-screening or matching services available, essential skills tools and pre-apprenticeship programs.
To address this need, we have created a one stop shop catalogue outlining various supports across the country for employers who may be interested in hiring apprentices.
Watch For It!
The catalogue, which is a map of Canada, will be found on our website at http://www.caf-fca.org/en/pilot/
Apprenticeship: IT Works! A stronger training culture starting with apprentices could change the world of doing business for employers and bring a world of change for Canada's future apprentices! Don't wait to get started!
This project was funded by the Government of Canada's Sector Council Program.
CAF-FCA is the only inclusive national body that brings together all players in apprenticeship training. CAF-FCA works under the guidance of its Board of Directors, who represent every aspect of the apprenticeship community. Our work has brought to light a number of key issues that affect apprenticeship training - such as perceived barriers to training; the business case for apprenticeship; and the importance of promoting apprenticeship training as a valued and respected choice for post-secondary education.
