Part of the Learner Skill Attainment Framework Initiative
Successful Transitions to College Post-secondary and Apprenticeship Programs is a follow-up study to the 2007 report entitled Essential Skills for Success in College Post-secondary and Apprenticeship Programs.
The 2007 Essential Skills for Success study involved interviewing 25 college post-secondary and apprenticeship faculty to gain feedback on the relative importance of HRSDC’s nine Essential Skills to student success in college programs and apprenticeship training. The follow-up project described in this document elicited feedback and information from an additional 23 college faculty, in particular faculty who teach in Academic Upgrading (AU) programs and who prepare students for transition to college programs and/or apprenticeship training. This project provides a glimpse into what AU teachers know are meaningful, “milestone” accomplishments and/or behaviours which are indicative of learners’ readiness to transition from AU into either a college program or apprenticeship training.
