Office of Employment & Training
Nancy Schaef, Director
The mission of the Ulster County Office of Employment and Training (UCOET) is to provide job seekers and employers the needed assistance to create a highly skilled and qualified workforce for Ulster County. By providing job training for eligible and suitable dislocated workers, low income and otherwise disadvantaged adults and youth, UCOET answers the needs of employers seeking a well-trained and capable workforce.
As the lead agency of the Ulster Works OneStop, located in the Business Resource Center on Ulster Avenue in Kingston, UCOET joins with partner agencies, New York State Department of Labor, SUNY Ulster, Ulster County Department of Social Services, BOCES and other agencies to offer job seekers and employers services all in one location.
Business services include job postings, employee screenings, tax credit information, customized training and on-the-job training. The job seeker services include job search assistance, labor market information, workshops, classroom training and on-the-job training.
The Ulster County Office of Employment and Training is funded 100% by Federal tax dollars under the federal mandate of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998.
