Series: Skills at Work series
Authors: Trudy Kennell
Collection: Learning Materials
The workbooks in the Skills at Work series are for adults in upgrading programs who are preparing for work. In Skills at Work, learners read about different kinds of jobs and the skills needed to do these jobs. The workbooks help learners see links between the skills they may already have and the skills they need at work and illustrate how skills can be transferred from one job to another.
This is the second workbook in the series. It contains "a day on the job" stories in which workers describe what's involved in doing their jobs. Through these stories, learners discover the skills required to do these jobs. This workbook is organized into two units. Unit one, Teams at Work, includes three activities. Unit two, Job Stories, features eleven job stories, and each story is followed by one or two activities.
