The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) helps job seekers access employment, training, and support services. It also matches employers with the skilled workers they need to compete. WIOA replaces and enhances the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998.
SCWOS is fueled by SC's largest workforce development database. If you are looking for a job, you’ll find a wealth of information - starting with thousands of positions listed by employers all over the state - to help in your job search.
On-the-Job Training, or OJT, is an employment and training strategy hybrid. That is, OJT is both employment and training. OJT assists WIOA candidates who have the skills for a new career, but lack practical hands-on experience by reimbursing an employer a part of their wage during the initial training period
Workshops are a great opportunity to enhance your job search, gain new skills or learn about new career options. SC Works Midlands brings you dynamic presentations on a wide range of topics every month. Please visit our Workshops page for the current calendar of events.
