CTMA extends Career-Ready placement program
- August 2, 2021
Career Ready helps employers add and train workers, increasing their skills for great job opportunities in the precision metal working sector, which includes machining, tool & die, mould making, jig/fixture building, automation/robotics, additive manufacturing, and automotive.
The program provides non-repayable contributions to eligible employers to subsidize the wages of new hires or the upskilling of existing employees that meet the program’s eligibility criteria.
Eligible employers will receive 30 per cent of wages paid to a maximum of $3,000 for a single placement, $6,000 for two placements and $9,000 for three placements to offset the cost of hiring and training.
The program supports experiential learning opportunities, which is a hands-on learning model where participants learn by doing. The goal is to provide participants with real-world work experience that improves their employability by building their knowledge and skills. It aims to
support employers in building a talent pipeline by introducing participants to careers in the precision metalworking sector.
This program will provide up to 250 placements for candidates that meet the program’s eligibility requirements. Work placements will run from 10 to 16 weeks, and consecutive placements will be permitted if they can be completed by March 31, 2022.
CTMA will coordinate interviews and placements for eligible candidates with member companies and other eligible employers in Ontario.
