Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) Program
The Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) program offers career guidance, educational supports, and employment opportunities to off-reserve Indigenous peoples on PEI.
Career guidance: the ISET program offers its clients assistance in writing cover letters, developing resumes, and conducting job searches. The program also offers coaching through interview tips and techniques. All of these skills are aimed in helping members becoming better candidates for upcoming job applications.
Education support: the ISET program covers some/or all of the costs (tuition, books, etc.) for 1-2 year programs through Holland College or other recognized colleges, or for the final year of a university program. ISET also provides funding for training that is suitable for industry and trade careers such as First Aid, WHMIS, Flagger Certification, Fall Safety, Marine Safety, etc.
The ISET program supports employment of participants through the provision of wage subsidies to employers. This allows individuals the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a desirable field of employment.
