Summer student employment programs up for grabs in Newfoundland and Labrador

Applications are now being accepted for the provincial government’s Summer Student Employment Programs (SSEP).

SSEP applications may be made online at www.aesl.gov.nl.ca and must be received by May 7 for post-secondary students and May 22 for high school students.

Budget 2018 alloted more than $1.6 million for SSEP and increases the subsidy rate for private sector employers hiring post-secondary students to $5.60 per hour from $5.

The Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour will also join with the Community Sector Council NL to deliver Assisting My Potential-Labour Market Initiative for Youth ( AMPLIFY) this summer. Launched as a pilot program last year, AMPLIFY helped youth gain work experience and participate in career development.
