Getting informed about Skills PEI programs
CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI – June 20, 2012 – Seventeen entrepreneurs and representatives of community organizations recently participated in lunch-and-learns in Charlottetown and Wellington to learn more about the various programs delivered by Skills PEI.
Program officer Natalie McDonald explained that these programs were conceived to help train and develop skills among employers and employees.
She mostly spoke about Self-Employ PEI, Employ PEI and Workplace Training, and answered many questions, mainly about program criteria and contribution levels.
These events were organized jointly by the Wellington Rural Action Centre (RAC) and the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE).
