Many job fields require specific skills in order to get hired. WtW has contracted with many community partners to provide a wide array of job skills training. Depending on skills assessment results, applicants may be eligible to receive training in computer and office technology, accounting, medical technology, marketing, construction, automotive services, and many other areas. Not all classes will be available for each participant.
Job skills classes help to fulfill the work requirements for CalWORKs. They also prepare participants to become self-sufficient, the primary goal of CalWORKs, by increasing the employability of participants.
