Second Career Program - Feedback .
But just because you are qualified for that program ,that does not necessarily mean you will receive funding for your education & living expenses of upto $ 28 K from the gov.
I was wondering if anyone here is actually en-rolled in this program & has actually receieved gov funding . If so how did you go about receiving the funding , how long did it take & what was the exact procedure used to secure the funding ?
I was told there is lot of bureaucracy & red-tape involved . They just give you the run around & you move from one employment counsellor or employment assessment centre to another without actually receiving any funding in the end ? ( Even if you qualify ) .
So you just waste 4-5 months of your life & in the end they tell you that you won't receive any funding for the course or college you have selected although it is a course or college from the list which is eligible for funding.
Is that true ?
All this program has done is create jobs for some well paid private contractors,schools & gov officials who are administering this program .
They just put you in some BS job workshops like how to make a resume , how to give an interview etc without actually funding your training so that you can get a new job or career. In the end they tell you to take OSAP or LOC & fund the education yourself.
