Workplace Essential Skills (WES) Program aims to help adults 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 participant’s career and educational needs (i.e. preparation for certification exams such as GED, Test of Workplace Essential Skills – TOWES, and trades Red Seal). Group activities are based on the nine Skills for Success (formerly Essential Skills - identified by the Government of Canada as being needed in the workplace), emerging ideas from participants’ discussions and skill development areas relating to individual learning and career goals. Thematic areas include: math, reading, teamwork, communication, personal/professional development, cultural diversity, global awareness, digital technology, career development, etc.
The WES Program 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 instructor will be responsible for program delivery and learning environment and be supported in that role by the WES Program Coordinator. They should have an awareness of roadblocks to life and learning that many adults face, and a willingness to nurture a deeper understanding of how these barriers may have affected a learner’s educational experience in the past.
