Wagner-Peyser Act

Located in:

d. 4. Provision of referrals to and application assistance for training and education programs and resources.

Current Narrative:

Provision of referrals to and application assistance for training and education programs and resources.

Regardless of their point of entry, claimants are assessed to determine their employment and/or training needs. The assessment may range from an informal interview to a standardized set of tests. Upon completion of the assessment and interpretation of results, claimants may be referred to a partner program, such as WIOA, for additional training information and/or enrollment. When referred to a partner program, the claimant’s eligibility for training is determined based on the program’s eligibility criteria. Career centers throughout Florida have collaborated and are often collocated with educational institutions where claimants may be referred for education assistance.

Wagner-Peyser funds help provide preliminary work-readiness workshops including interviewing skills, résumé writing, and job search strategies and can be used to provide referrals to internal and external training and education programs and resources.
