Case Management

Case management is a collaborative process that can help job seekers prepare for, find and maintain employment. A case manager can help develop a plan and complete the steps necessary to achieve job seeker goals – whatever they may be. And if plans change, a case manager will be there to help revaluate those goals. Think of a case manager as a guide and source of information to help  make decisions.


Funding Programs

If completing a training program in part of the plan, funding is important. Island Employment can help find funding programs that meet your job seeker needs and determine eligibility for funding programs offered by Employment Nova Scotia.
