Essential Skills for the WorkPlace - Marguerite Riel Centre - Melfort

Essential Skills for the WorkPlace Programming

 

The Essential Skills for the WorkPlace (ESWP) program is a program that can accommodate many academic levels with the primary focus to help participants transition to the workforce. All participants will participate in academic upgrading, at an individualized level, as well as career research and job readiness skill development. Programs will begin with a life skills portion designed to enhance personal management skills and bolster self-esteem. Topics to include assessing barriers to employment, assessing skills and interests, communicating effectively, conflict resolution and decision making and goal setting. We will use the ESAT, Essential Skills Assessment Tool, developed by FutureWorx to help build employability skills and self-awareness in participants. It works specifically with benchmarks to evaluate essential skills, motivation, attitude, accountability, teamwork, confidence, adaptability, stress management, presentation, and time management.

 

They will then transition to academic preparation and job readiness training. Participants will work on areas such as digital literacy, cyber security, virtual meeting tools, as well in MS Word. They will work on pre-employment skills such as resume writing and interviewing skills. We hope to incorporate some health & safety certificates depending on participant interest and need, such as First Aid/CPR/AED, Food Safe, and WHMIS.

 

The transition to employment piece will happen throughout the programming, to help participants develop goals and skills. Participants will participate in job search and career research, job shadowing, and work placements. The goal of the program is to facilitate 60 hours per participant of employment-based experience, with participants and the class instructor working to ensure that all placements are supported, and feedback is regularly collected to ensure a positive experience for both the participant and the employer.

 

The employer will be asked to complete some initial paperwork to ensure that participants are properly covered under the college’s MOU with WCB. Employers will be asked to document through forms and short interviews with the instructor the types of activities the participant has performed and to provide feedback on the participants areas of strengths and weaknesses. The goal for participants is that they will be able to use the work placement as a resume builder and be clear on the skills and abilities gained and mastered during their time in the program.
