The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act or (WIOA) is commonly misunderstood to be only relevant to people seeking assistance with tuition assistance. However, the Workforce Innovation
and Opportunity Act has much more to offer than assistance with training. The Workforce Innovation
and Opportunity Act is a federally funded program designed to assist participants with finding and retaining employment and to help employers find qualified job seekers.
WIOA was designed to provide a 3-tiered service delivery that would offer services at your level of need.
Core Services are designed to assist you in putting your high-demand occupational skills to work through job seeking assistance, assistance with your resume, workshops to assist you with specific job seeking skills and similar other immediate services. 2) Intensive Services are available to those people unable to currently go to work but could if some additional service was available. For example, if you simply need your licensure or certification or brush up in skills, intensive services may be the best route for you. Finally, 3) Training Services are available to those people seeking assistance who cannot go to work with their current level of skills and need a full training program in order to obtain marketable skills.
Since WIOA is not an entitlement program, selection for enrollment of participants takes into consideration many factors including meeting eligibility factors and suitability factors. Your first step in obtaining assistance under WIOA is to complete the orientation.
WIOA is a “work first program" whose goal is to assist customers to enter or return to employment
