Calling local employers, SC Works Trident has received an additional $150,000 in Local Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) funding! The money must be obligated by June 30, 2017, so apply today.
The IWT program’s purpose is to assist businesses in training current employees in an effort to keep both businesses and workers competitive. Private-sector South Carolina businesses in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties that are in need of training for incumbent workers due to expansion and changing skill requirements caused by new technology, retooling new product lines, and new organizational restructuring may be eligible for IWT assistance. The funding is being made available under provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
For more information, please contact SC Works Trident’s Workforce Development Director, Sharon Goss. She can be reached at (843) 529-0400 ext. 203 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information and a copy of the application can be found at www.tridentscworks.org or www.bcdcog.com.
