Learn IT 2 Work
The Learn IT 2 Work program is an intensive 25 hour program delivered over 5 days. Topics covered in class include: Computer basics; the Internet; Microsoft Word; email; and searching for jobs online. The class size is limited to 10 participants per session, ensuring personal attention and support. A mobile training lab allows each participant to use a laptop computer during class time. Enrollees are paid for this training time and excused from their host agency training during the week of class. The Learn IT 2 Work program is delivered by A4TD’s Employability Trainers at individual training centers on a rotating basis.
Upon successful completion of the Learn IT 2 Work program, the participants are assessed to measure the improvement of their computer and job search skills, and to ensure the success of the training methodologies used in the program.
