  • About

    The Northwest Tennessee Workforce Board is a partner program of the Tennessee Career Centers. The Workforce Board focuses on Jobseeker and Employer services. One specific service is providing grant funds to employers for training programs, such as:

    Customized Training - When an employer identifies the need to train a group of job applicants in a specific occupational skill area, the Northwest TN Workforce Board can assist with meeting the employer's training needs. The local program can pay up to 50% of the total cost for training a group of potential employees.

    On-the-Job Training - When an employer identifies the need to fill a vacant position, they often have a choice of hiring a skilled worker or a worker who needs to have additional training. If the employer is willing to hire an individual who has no prior experience in the vacant position, an on-the-job training contract may be developed with the Northwest TN Workforce Board. Under this agreement, the local program can pay up to 50% of the trainee's wages during the specified training period.

    Incumbent Worker Training Grants - The Incumbent Worker Training Program provides grant funding for customized training for existing for profit businesses.
