Second Career

About Second Career

Second Career is an initiative offered by the Ontario government to fund eligible laid-off workers with skills training to help them find jobs in high-demand occupations in Ontario.

It's a cost-sharing grant provided on the basis of need; applicants may be required to financially contribute to their training or education.

Second Career may cover such costs as tuition, textbooks, transportation and basic living allowance. Additional support may be available to accommodate the needs of individuals with disabilities, dependent care, costs of living away from home and Academic Upgrading or ESL.

For general information about Second Career, visit the Second Career Government website.

Sheridan Second Career Information Sessions

In addition to the mandatory Government Second Career Information Sessions, Sheridan offers information sessions specific to the college application process. After each information session, you're invited to stay for a personal consultation in which we'll discuss your Sheridan application. We've received excellent feedback from past attendees about how helpful the Sheridan Second Career Information Sessions are in clarifying the whole process, which can seem a little complicated. View upcoming information sessions.
