Filling the Gaps: ES and Internationally Educated Professionals (Case Study)

Skilled workers are in high demand in Canada. Internationally trained professionals (IPTs) continue to be an important source of skilled manpower. Newcomers to Canada are highly motivated to gain higher employability levels in their field.

This case study examines the impact of Essential Skills training on the effectiveness of Internationally Trained Professionals (IPTs) in their work place.  The project lead by Bow Valley College, in collaboration with WorleyParson and the City of Calgary included an Essential Skills assessment, followed by a blended training approach in classroom and online embedded in a professional development plan for workers.

The project focused on delivering a blend of intercultural communication skills, cultural awareness and essential skills training for this specialized group of adult workers which enabled them to maximize their job potential.
