Series: Awareness Tools - HRSDC
Collection: Learning Materials
This two-page document provides information about tools that are available through Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) to help understand, assess, and improve Essential Skills. The tools can be used by apprentices and tradespersons; employers; and trainers, educators, or advisors. The authors provide, in chart form, examples of what they describe as inform tools, assess tools, and support tools. For example, an inform tool might be a story illustrating how Essential Skills are used in a typical workday, while an assess tool could be a checklist to help identify training needs.
The document includes a link, www.red-seal.ca, that provides information about the Red Seal Program, the interprovincial standards system that offers greater mobility across Canada for skilled workers.
