Skills Development Fund
What Is It? The Skills Development Fund exists to help Texas employers build a better workforce to remain competitive in our volatile world market. The customized training it funds ensures that current employees upgrade their skills and new employees become proficient in industry skills.
How Does It Work? If you are a business, part of a business consortium or a trade union that has established an employee training need, you collaborate with a community college or public technical college to customize a training program to address those needs. A grant proposal is submitted to the Skills Development Fund and if accepted, the training is paid by the Fund. The college administers the grant. Training methods can be on-site, hands-on, simulation, classroom and online, or whatever combination best suits your business and your employees.
