Training & Apprenticeship Programs
Education and Training Assessment
Referrals to educational resources and training are a vital service offered to the JumpStart clients. During the assessment phase, the Career Counselors will determine if the clients need education or training to prepare the clients for job placement and for a lifetime of career opportunities. The education and training assessment may include the following services:
• Discovering career options.
• Completing skills assessment tools to match the clients interests.
• Identifying transferable skills to allow transition to a new field of work.
• Conducting a Labor Market Survey to investigate education requirements and research salaries.
Training and Apprenticeship Opportunities
Short-term training can enhance the transition to employment by making the client more marketable. JumpStart can connect you to community resources that provide free training.
The JumpStart Apprenticeship Program allows clients to receive hands-on experience in a variety of skilled and non-skilled work settings. This program is intended to reinforce the competitive strength of clients’ resumes and work skills while improving their opportunity to receive permanent employment.
Many organizations have established internship programs that cater to students. Often, JumpStart Apprentices are not students, but still have the same work experience, needs, and enthusiasm. As such, we encourage organizations to include a JumpStart Apprenticeship in their current programs..
JumpStart Apprentices may be employed by the organization or may be engaged as an independent contractor. Apprenticeships are based on the need for:
• On the job training
• Acquiring a new skill set
• Work experience
• Building confidence and a smooth transition back to work
• Updating resume with current work history
Please Note: Training and apprenticeship opportunities are outsourced. JumpStart does not offer training at the Georgia Transplant Foundation facility.
