Job Options BC is an employment and skills training program that can help unemployed residents gain the skills, confidence and experience they need to find employment. If you are unemployed but not an Employment Insurance (EI) client and you want to become employed, this program is designed to help you!
Please note: the Job Options BC program is currently accepting applicants for cycle 2 and cycle 3. Our website will be updated when new information regarding this program is available.
- Up to 10 weeks of group and individual programming, short-term training and work experience that prepares participants for new employment, or when appropriate, further training.
- Four to six weeks of group activities, including assessment, life skills, job-finding clubs and employability skills (job search, basic skills upgrading, computer training, and short term skill training). Groups usually include 10 to 12 participants.
- Further skills training and/or work experience during the remainder of the program includes employer, community-based or volunteer work experience. This provides the opportunity for participants to learn skills to assist their search for paid employment.
- Up to six months of follow-up support provided for those who need additional help to find and maintain employment or to regain employment if they lose a job.
