ES for Success : NSCC Students Enhance Learning (Case Study)

Do community college students in the School of Business have the Essential Skills necessary for program completion? What impact would using Essential Skills interventions have on their learning and future work?

These were questions that NSCC academic leaders sought answers to by asking students in Business Administration, Culinary Arts and Tourism Management at the Kingstec Campus to participate in a research project. There were 90 students who agreed to participate with 66 students completing the initial Test of Workplace Essential Skills (TOWES). Forty participants scored at Level 2 in Document Use. Six completed some Essential Skills (ES) training and the second TOWES assessment. All the students showed improved results on the three TOWES subscales Reading, Document Use and Numeracy.
