This document offers an overview of a Nova Scotia initiative that incorporates an informal assessment with the apprenticeship registration process. The assessment determines whether an apprentice needs support in acquiring the skills needed to succeed in training. If so, a learning plan is developed, using trades-specific material.
The authors explain the program in detail, including the evaluation process and instructional strategies for teaching adults. They also discuss what is meant by the term document use and why it is important.
The program is a joint initiative of the Nova Scotia Department of Education, the Nova Scotia Community College, and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
