This money will be used to enhance our service delivery to job seekers by adding laptops with access to internet, online e-learning, and assessments as well as Microsoft Office software to support job seekers while attending appointments with their career practitioners. Each computer will support online learning, skill development and the completion of self-marketing tools to support employment action plans.
