"Ready for Work" Training

Get “Ready for Work” — Program for Job Seekers in Brattleboro

Interested in our program “Ready for Work,” a program offering training and support to unemployed, disadvantaged workers?

“Ready for Work” consists of a free, 6-week employment readiness course along with intensive, one-on-one support to help participants improve their resume writing and interviewing skills, overcome employment barriers, search for and apply for jobs, and transition successfully into the workforce. 

The program was initially developed through a partnership involving CCV, Southeastern Vermont Community Action (SEVCA), and the Windham Workforce Investment Board (WWIB) with funding from a Regional Workforce Partnership Grant from the Vermont Department of Labor. “Ready for Work” was successfully piloted during the 2014-15 academic year at CCV in Brattleboro and Springfield.

“The combination of classroom learning and individual support the program offers enables participants to obtain the core workplace skills and self-assurance they need to get and keep good jobs,” SEVCA’s Executive Director Steve Geller said. “The new partnership with Vermont Adult Learning is just what’s needed to support not only workers, but employers as well, who are always looking for reliable, job-ready employees.”
