Employment Training Programs at Newcomer Connections help newcomers to prepare for their first job in Saint John. There are three elements to the programs: employment language training, employment preparation training and employer contact.
Sector Specific Employment Language Training programs offer newcomers the opportunity to build their language skills and prepare for the workplace. Each program focuses on a different sector so that students get the specific language and training they need to succeed.
SSELT programs are usually eight to 12 weeks in length. Classes are typically offered every day, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Some examples of our Sector Specific Training include hospitality, child care, finance and accounting, and facilities maintenance and housekeeping. Pathways to employment programs offer short term courses that allow Newcomers learn the language to challenge certifications like the Driver’s License test, food safety certificate, babysitting, among others.
