Overview of the Skills Development Fund for Texas Companies

 Skills Development Fund is Texas' premier job–training program providing training dollars for Texas businesses and workers. Administered by the Texas Workforce Commission, success is achieved through collaboration among businesses, public Community and Technical colleges, Local Workforce Development Boards and economic development partners. A business, consortium of businesses, or trade union identifies a training need, and then partners with a public Community or Technical college to fill its specific needs. Businesses work with college partners to submit proposals, develop curricula and conduct training. The Skills Development Fund pays for the training, the college administers the grant, and businesses create new jobs and improve the skills of their current workers. As a Texas employer, you are the focus of the Skills Development Fund. As an employer, you provide two things undefined a desire to collaborate with the other partners involved with the project and the commitment to see the project through to completion.” I will also discuss the requirements of the business, timelines for training, and qualities that make a good proposal. In addition I will also briefly discuss the Skills for Small Business program that is only for employers with less than 100 employees.
