Workers and Technical Students in ES Training (Case Study)

How do we go about training workers and technical students in Essential Skills?

Sault College used TOWES testing and conducted training interventions with three groups to test, train and retest workers and students about to enter the workforce. The groups included 29 workers from Essar Steel Algoma, 32 students from the electrical and mechanical programs at Sault College, as well as, 23 Aboriginal students in pre-apprenticeship programs. Eighty-four workers and technical students were tested for the project.

A total of 35 workers and students participated in the Essential Skills intervention, for various amounts of training, with 5 workers and 6 technical students moving from Level 2 to Level 3 in Document Use, Reading Text and Numeracy.
