Education is one of the most important investments in life. “Can I afford it?” is a question frequently asked by our students, especially if they’ve been laid off or are looking to create a career path that’s future-proof.
WHAT IS SECOND CAREER FUNDING?
Second Career Funding is an education funding available for recently laid-off unemployed workers. For many, long-term skills training is essential in the transition to in-demand career opportunities, and our practical programs and real-life training, delivered by high-calibre, industry-expert faculty, can take you there. You just need funding options to get you back to school and work. If you are a recently laid-off unemployed worker, an active EI claimant or EI reachback, you may be able to access this funding.
