ARE YOU RECENTLY UNEMPLOYED?
AND YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?
How about getting retrained in a rigorous 6 to 12 week credential program for an in-demand job in a high-growth sector? If you are willing to take the challenge, you could get a new job in technology, healthcare or manufacturing. You can receive tuition grants from FastForward and earn a $1,000 award from VA Ready when you achieve your training credential.
If you’re recently out-of-work, the Virginia Ready Initiative can help you gain necessary skills to get back to work in an in-demand job.
This partnership with Virginia Ready, the Virginia Community College System and Virginia’s FastForward Workforce Credential Grant program offers credentials for in-demand occupations across three industry categories – technology, health care, and skilled trades.
VA Ready provides registered VA Ready Scholars a $1,000 Credential Achievement Award upon obtaining the final credential in selected training programs.
Anyone who is currently unemployed and eligible to enroll in a FastForward program is qualified to become a VA Ready Scholar. FastForward eligibility is not based on employment status nor enrollment in the VA Ready Scholar program.
