We’re helping get Virginians back to work.
Over one million Virginians have experienced employment disruption, including unemployment, due to Covid-19. VA Ready’s goal is to reward Virginians who seize the moment and commit themselves to training for in-demand jobs. We’ve partnered with businesses across Virginia and Virginia’s Community Colleges and the FastForward Workforce Credential Program to equip them with the skills needed for sustainable jobs in high-growth sectors.
WAS YOUR EMPLOYMENT DISRUPTED DUE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC? DO YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?
How about getting retrained in a rigorous 6 to 12 week credential program for an in-demand job in a high-growth sector? If you are willing to take the challenge, you could get a new job in technology, healthcare, manufacturing, or skilled trades. You can receive tuition grants from FastForward and earn a $1,000 award from VA Ready when you achieve your training credential.
