Job Training

The work2future Business Services Team can assist you with developing and accessing training programs that may benefit your employees and your business.

  • Local Contracted Training Providers:  Local Contracted Training Providers offer training to work2future clients. Training may be for jobs within particular career clusters, or training may be for specific skills such as financial management that can help make an employee more successful.
  • Opportunities for Training Partnerships:  If you are interested in providing training for our clients within our key industry clusters, contact work2future and discuss your area of specialty.  At this time, our key industry clusters are: hospitality, healthcare, retail, software & high-tech, public sector, construction/apprenticeship, bioscience, and financial services.
  • On-the-Job Training (OJT): Provides reimbursement to employers to help compensate for costs associated with training newly hired employees. The OJT Program enables employers the opportunity to hire good employees whose skills can be upgraded to meet the needs of the job.  For more information contact Mirza Handzar at mirza.handzar@work2futurefoundation.org or at (408) 794-1226.  If you are ready to get started you may download the new OJT Application/Agreement
  • Customized Training (CT): Provides reimbursement to employers to assist with certain expenses associated with skills upgrade training to bridge the gap between the participant’s initial skill level and the skill level required. If a local, industry-related training program is not available, then the CT Program can help you to train a group of people to meet your specific needs.
