The JobSeries programs are pre-employment and pre-training learning opportunities for people who require personal skills development, need assistance to develop career plans, find employment or to enhance work skills and maintain employment.
The programs are purchased from SIIT by Labour Force Development Agencies, Enhanced Skills Development Programs (i.e. Social Development Programs) or employers who wish to develop a pool of employees for future employment.
