Self-Employment training is a program element under the Training for Work program. It facilitates entry into self-employment by offering individuals formal instruction, business plan development, one-to-one business counseling, coaching, guidance and follow-up during business plan implementation. It is designed for unemployed and marginally employed Albertans who have a viable business idea, personal attributes necessary to be successful at self-employment, and who are in need of self-employment training.
The objectives of the Self-Employment program are:
- to assist unemployed and marginally employed Albertans to create employment opportunities for themselves, and
- to create additional employment opportunities in the community that might not otherwise be available.
