👨🏻🏫👩🏿🚒👩🏽⚕️ Find the Best Training
Mobile-optimized site to help job seekers find high-quality training that is eligible for publicly-funded tuition assistance.
This project is an experiment to increase usability and data presentation of the New Jersey ETPL in order to support job seekers in choosing a training program.
Every state provides a list of training programs that a job seeker can get help paying for with a subsidy from the public workforce system. This list is generally called an Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL).
For people struggling to escape the cycle of low-wage work, subsidized training or paid apprenticeships can dramatically increase opportunities for higher-wage work.
States publish different amounts of data about programs on their ETPL. Some include employment rates, wages, and long-term wage growth, while others provide just titles and descriptions. For example, the New Jersey ETPL exposes a lot of data about each program.
