Applications are now being accepted for the provincial government’s Summer Student Employment Programs (SSEP).
SSEP applications may be made online at www.aesl.gov.nl.ca and must be received by May 7 for post-secondary students and May 22 for high school students.
Budget 2018 alloted more than $1.6 million for SSEP and increases the subsidy rate for private sector employers hiring post-secondary students to $5.60 per hour from $5.
The Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour will also join with the Community Sector Council NL to deliver Assisting My Potential-Labour Market Initiative for Youth ( AMPLIFY) this summer. Launched as a pilot program last year, AMPLIFY helped youth gain work experience and participate in career development.
