We design Essential Skills programs that are customized to fit the needs, interests, and circumstances of your workplace. By working with employers and technical experts, we can develop a program designed to improve the Essential Skills of workers or apprentices at your company.
The following are examples of programs we have designed in projects with mining companies and Aboriginal groups.
This Essential Skills program aims to improve the success of participants preparing for technical training for the ore extraction occupation. Using authentic materials from technical training and the mining industry, participants learn reading strategies and review math skills.
Program participants improve their Essential Skills by learning reading, numeracy and study strategies that will increase their chances of success in passing the Drilling and Blasting exam. Curriculum materials are taken from the Driller’s and Blaster’s handbook.
This program teaches workers, supervisors, and contractors a strategy for mentoring new workers on the jobsite. The mentorship program benefits both the company and the industry by fostering the passing on of skills and the continuation of the industry.
