SCSEP for Employers


As an employer, SCSEP can help you find trained and qualified mature workers to fill important jobs in your organization.

How can my organization participate in SCSEP?

If you’re a nonprofit or public facility, you might be eligible to become a SCSEP training site. To be a training site, you must:

  • Have appropriate training for older workers
  • Offer diverse and quality training opportunities
  • Meet NCOA safety standards 

If you’re interested in becoming a training site, please contact your local NCOA SCSEP office.

Can SCSEP train mature workers to meet my organization’s exact needs?

Yes. We work directly with employers to provide qualified mature workers trained to their requirements. The program is called On-the-Job Experience (OJE).

Through OJE, the local SCSEP project agrees to pay all or part of a mature worker’s wages while he or she is being trained. Paperwork is kept to a minimum. The mature worker must be eligible for SCSEP, and certain limitations apply.

For more information on how OJE can benefit your organization, please contact your local NCOA SCSEP office.

I’m looking for mature workers to serve as direct care workers. Can SCSEP help?

Yes. We’re pioneering a program to train mature workers to be direct care providers to elderly and disabled persons who need assistance in their home. We’re working with direct care agencies and PHI National to recruit and train mature workers to provide non-medical care.

With a special grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, we’re also conducting a three-year pilot project to train and place 300 mature workers in health care occupations. So far, we’ve trained over 350 mature health care workers in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

If you’re looking for well-trained direct care workers, please contact your local NCOA SCSEP office.

Where can I get more information?

You can learn more about SCSEP at the U.S. Department of Labor.
