Encore (55+)

WHO IS THE PROGRAM FOR?

Encore is for 55+ unemployed or underemployed people living in Creston, Cranbrook, Fernie and Invermere.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER IT?

More people than ever are working past traditional retirement years and are changing jobs to support their goals later in life. Encore is a 12 week program designed to support this season of transition.

WHAT IS IT?

Four weeks of paid, in-class training and evaluation. Five days a week. That’s right, participants are paid to learn!

Take time to review your skills and strengths: Assess and develop computer skills and learn office software, explore how to market yourself or an idea, evaluate upgrading and skills training courses, research and meet employers.

This is followed by 8 weeks of supported employment or skills training certification. This could include a short term course to certify you for a skill in your desired job, an on-the-job training with a dedicated employer, or development of a self-employment idea.

Program starts October 21, 2019
