Skills Development Funding

CCATCM is a private career college recognized by the Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education, thereby qualifying for skills development funding for eligible individuals. This funding is an excellent opportunity for those who are eligible to receive funding for their education, and we are happy to report that some students have received up to $20,000 to upgrade their skills through this program. 

Skills Development Program Objective:
The skills development (SD) program provides unemployed eligible participants who need to learn additional basic to advanced skills development training to help find work. SD participants should be those who lack marketable skills and need new or additional occupational skills in order to improve their employment prospects but are otherwise job ready. Participants requesting support through this program attend training on a full-time basis and training may be approved by public or private training providers.
