Train Your Workforce
Once you find the workers you need, Workforce Solutions can help your business take the next step by providing training services. Workforce Solutions connects job seekers with employment opportunities through an integrated employer-driven system. Workforce Solutions can also link you to state programs that will offset the costs of training. These programs include:
The Skills Development Fund assists businesses and labor unions by designing, financing, and implementing customized job-training programs in partnership with public community and technical colleges for new or existing jobs in local businesses. The fund successfully merges business needs and local job training opportunities into a winning combination.
The Self-Sufficiency Fund Program, administered by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), assists businesses by designing, financing, and implementing customized job-training programs in partnership with public community and technical colleges, a higher education extension service, and community-based organizations for the creation of new jobs and/or the retraining of existing workforce members.
Skills for Small Business, also administered by TWC, is a program designed to serve employers with fewer than 100 employees. Incumbent and newly-hired full-time employees choose training from the active course selections of community or technical colleges. The training can be for one or more courses and in any form: credit, continuing education, online or unpublished. Skills for Small Business pays the tuition and fees. We look forward to working with you!
Registered Apprenticeships are an attractive way to develop a highly skilled and productive workforce. Here are some examples of how your business can benefit:
A Registered Apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation.
Subsidized Employment, intermittently implemented by Workforce Solutions, is an employment training program for targeted groups, such as youth and/or people who are receiving government assistance. In the training program, Workforce Solutions will pay the initial wages for qualified hires working under your direction at your business.
