Home Elevate PLUS Military

Eligible Individuals and Employers receive 100% funding to cover training costs towards a Loyalist College credential under this SAO initiative.

Military Spouses, Military Family Members and former serving Military Members bring strong skills and a diverse set of experiences, perspectives, and ideas to the workforce. These members of Canada’s military community form one of Canada’s most adaptable, versatile, and hidden talent pools. They are often resilient, problem solvers, dedicated and are looking to be part of a great team. Elevate Plus Military addresses the challenges faced by Military Spouses, Military Family Members and former serving Military Members as they integrate into the local workforce. Military life can involve unique pressures including frequent relocations, and disruptions to family life through short notice and prolonged absences of their serving member often in dangerous situations. A lack of positions or opportunities that align with their education and background means they must often start over with each posting.

The ELEVATE PLUS MILITARY Training Program is a Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development project providing focused training, re-skilling and education for Veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces and their Families located in the Quinte region. These training opportunities are meant to provide support to anyone who may be unemployed and looking for fulltime work or underemployed and who simply face barriers to advancement or lack transferable skills in their current position.

As an Employer, through the Elevate Plus Military, you can access specialized training to meet the needs of your existing and future workforce.  Eligible training can include technical, trades, leadership & change management, continuous improvement, and regulatory compliance.  The Elevate Plus Military program provides access to customized training – developed in consultation with industry-tailored for your sector.

Funded by the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities through Skills Advance Ontario (SAO). We offer workforce development support, including no-cost training for Bay of Quinte Region.  Skills Advance Ontario will support sector-based workforce development by funding partnerships that connect employers with the employment and training services required to recruit and advance workers with the right essential, technical, and employability skills.

“Giving people the skills they need to fill jobs in their community is essential to helping them recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Micro-credential and short-duration training programs help people learn new skills quickly to prepare for in-demand career opportunities. I want to thank Loyalist College for stepping up to keep people across the Bay of Quinte region at the forefront of Ontario’s economy.” – Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development

Ministry of Labour Funded multi-week training program for emerging jobs in the Financial Services and Banking industries!

At Elevate Plus Military, we are all about advancing change, creating hope and building resilience. During this virtual training program, you’ll gain a better understanding about your personal attributes, your values, and your interests. You’ll explore the new landscape of the current workplace, about the expectations of employers, and about others with whom you’ll work. And, finally you’ll discover and learn about helping clients within the growing field of Personal Financial Services.

How is the program structured?

The program is designed to be completed with a commitment of 15-20 hours per week. Throughout the program, you’ll use a variety of learning tools. Sometimes you’ll connect with a virtual instructor engaging and involved with group activities in “real time” using Zoom at a scheduled time. Sometimes, you’ll complete self-paced learning online at a time of your own choosing and convenience. And, at other times, you’ll access links to video content through our digital platform known as Blackboard. And, sometimes you’ll connect with your learning coach to prompt you individually, and answer questions.

Regardless of the learning activity, you need to have an open mind, and be eager to try new things in order to be successful. You’ll need to allocate dedicated time to participate with instructors, and to study and review your key learnings. For more information, reach out today!
