More on Elevate Plus
Building a strong, sustainable community in the Quinte area is a priority for the partnership between Quinte Economic Development Commission (QEDC) and Loyalist College’s Training and Knowledge Centre (LTKC). So our joint program, Elevate Plus, provides training to help employers and unemployed and underemployed workers fill well-paid positions in more permanent local work. It’s an ecosystem designed to offer sustainable support for both businesses and residents.
The Bay of Quinte has a large cluster of Ontario’s manufacturers. The Elevate Plus Program provides free training and support for workers to enter local manufacturing and food processing jobs. Four weeks of classroom training are followed by a two week job trial. The trial period gives both employer and employee a chance to see if it is a good fit, eliminating the major expenditure, of finances and time, typically spent on the hiring process
This pilot program is paid for by the Government of Ontario in partnerships with Quinte Economic Development Commission and Loyalist Training & Knowledge Centre.
