March and May Panel Cancelled
The Panel meeting originally scheduled for March 28, 2014 and May 22, 2014 are cancelled due to funding constraints for the duration of this Fiscal Year. The constraints are due in part to higher than expected earnings on proposals funded in the previous Fiscal Year.
Re-Thinking ETP: Public Forum
Thanks to the members of our stakeholder community, who spoke before the Panel at the recent "Re-Thinking ETP" Public Forums. Staff will review all comments and present them to the Panel, along with recommendations, at an upcoming meeting. There may be a series of presentations, beginning with the general forums and continuing to the apprenticeship forum. Stay tuned to this site for more information!
The Employment Training Panel (ETP) provides funding to employers to assist in upgrading the skills of their workers through training that leads to good paying, long-term jobs. The ETP was created in 1982 by the California State Legislature and is funded by California employers through a special payroll tax. The ETP is a funding agency, not a training agency. Businesses determine their own training needs and how to provide training. ETP staff is available to assist in applying for funds and other aspects of participation.
