How Will You Pay for Education & Training?

Once you know which career you want to pursue, Workforce Solutions staff will help you figure out how to pay for any training or education you might need. Podemos ayudarlo a completar un presupuesto, a determinar su elegibilidad y brindarle asistencia para solicitar distintos tipos de ayuda financiera.

You can check out a variety of resources and websites below.

  • Pell Grants - Pell Grants are federal grants that don't have to be repaid. Solo se entregan a estudiantes universitarios que no hayan obtenido una licenciatura o un diploma profesional. Cuánto puede recibir usted dependerá no solo de sus recursos financieros, sino también del costo de asistencia, si es un estudiante de tiempo parcial o completo, y si asiste a la universidad por un año académico completo o menos. Puede recibir una sola Beca Pell por año académico, y no puede recibir fondos de Becas Pell en más de una escuela a la vez.

¿Qué es la Red de proveedores de capacitación?

La red de proveedores de educación y capacitación de Workforce Solutions es un grupo de organizaciones aprobadas para ofrecer diversos servicios educativos y de capacitación a nuestros clientes. Career and education institutions must complete the application process to be listed on the statewide ETPL by Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). Once the school and program are approved, Workforce Solutions screens them to be added to the Training Provider Network. Services provided by career and education institutions are grouped into three categories: Basic SkillsCareer Training and Career Advancement Training.

Habilidades básicas include adult basic education classes, English as a Second Language instruction, job readiness and general computer literacy training (ex: Microsoft Office Products). If you need to brush up on your basic skills, learn English, or prepare for high school equivalency (GED), there are several programs in the community available at no charge. Our career office staff can help you find one. Workforce Solutions puede ayudarlo además a pagar el examen GED.

Capacitación de empleo refers to courses or programs that prepare you for a specific occupation. Workforce Solutions provides support for occupations in the Gulf Coast region’s targeted industries. Courses may lead to certificates, associate degrees, and/or bachelor's degrees. Examples include Registered Nursing, Welding and Petroleum Engineers.

Capacitación para el desarrollo profesional consiste en cursos o seminarios de corta duración para ayudarlo a desarrollar habilidades adicionales y/o avanzar en su profesión. Career advancement may include testing/assessment to demonstrate competency and may also include training to allow an individual to transition existing skills from one occupation or industry to another. Los ejemplos de la capacitación para el desarrollo profesional incluyen capacitación sobre SAP, capacitación adicional sobre soldadura (MIG, TIG, Fluxcore, etc.), y redes + capacitación.
