There are a number of 1199SEIU League Training and Upgrading Fund workshops you may be advised or required to take along your academic and career journey. Workshops are offered throughout the year at several locations.
Tuition Assistance Workshop
Required for all voucher and reimbursement students.
Learn how to make the most of the academic and financial assistance available to you, including how to access new tuition assistance initiatives, programs and services. Eligibility guidelines are also reviewed. If you’ve used tuition assistance benefits more than two years ago, we strongly recommend that you take this workshop again, as the benefit may have changed.
Career Planning Workshop
Many members come into the Training Fund with only a vague idea of what type of career they want to pursue. Some say ‘Nursing’ almost reflexively, as the profession pays decently and allows people to work directly with patients. However, you may wish to explore other professions to find the right match for you. In this workshop, you will Learn about healthcare careers in greater depth and develop an action plan for future career exploration. You’ll complete the Holland’s Self Directed Search (SDS) career assessment test, which helps identify occupations closely related to your skills, interests and values. If you’re unsure of what you want to study or you want to learn more about emerging professions, we urge you to take this workshop.
