Workplace Essential Skills (WES) Lennox Program aims to help adults who are members of the Lennox Island First Nation and who are underemployed or seeking employment and require additional essential skills to succeed. WES training uses a blended model of group activities related to improving workplace competencies along with learning plans individualized to fit each participants’ career and educational needs. Group activities are based on essential skills needed in the workplace (see Skills for Success by the Government of Canada), social-emotional or employability skills highly sought after by employers for today’s workforce, and emerging ideas from learners’ discussions and teachable moments in the classroom . Thematic areas include: communications, personal management, working with others, find and use information, understand and use numbers, digital technology, problem-solving, cultural identity, building community, and career development.
The WES Learning Coach/Instructor needs to be flexible, adaptable, and compassionate, while at the same time coaching learners to move beyond their comfort zone (using a scaffolded and strength-based approach). The person acting in this position will share program delivery and learning environment responsibilities with another Learning Coach/Instructor, and will meet regularly with the WES Program Coordinator and Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI’s Employment Counsellor. People in this position should have an awareness of roadblocks to life and learning that many adults face, and a willingness to nurture a deeper understanding of Indigenous Peoples’ perspectives and realities.
