Workforce Development Act Program
The Workforce Development Act replaced the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) in July 1999. It provides services to Adults, Dislocated Workers, and Youth. The Services provided are Core Services, Intensive Services and Training Services and are offered through One-Stop Career Centers.
Core Services are a variety of services offered at the Local One-Stop Career Centers that will determine what type of skills and employment needs you have and offers numerous employment assistance services. Should you be unable to find employment or employment that does not allow your family to be self-sufficient through activities considered core services, you may be referred by a One-Stop partner to a WIOA Career Manager for Intensive Service.
Intensive services are administered to assist in continuing to obtain or retain employment by providing increased career planning and assessment, individual employability development and supportive service needs.
Training services begin when it has been determined, through all assistance received through Core and Intensive Services that employment cannot be found or employment cannot be retained with current skills, education and abilities. Training services will be considered for high demand occupations in the Cumberlands Workforce Development Area.
